I have taught, tutored, and counseled students at the elementary, secondary, and college levels over a period of fifteen years. My Texas State Certifications include Elementary (1-6), Special Education (EC-12), Social Studies (8-12), and School Counselor (EC-12). Students at all levels tend to feel comfortable in my presence as I am very patient and understand what they are going through if they are struggling. Although I am very good at elementary math, I had my struggles with this subject at the high school and college levels and certainly have not forgotten it. My favorite subject to teach is the writing process, and I am available to do so with any age group. My attitude toward writing is that, "If you are literate, and you can tell a story, then you can write about it." Many of my students have concurred with me on this. Being certified as a school counselor, I am quite good at reading how to approach and work with individual students and inspiring them to do their best. Students need to know that there is a reason for learning, and I do my best to express that reasoning.
