I am a certified teacher who has taken the year off to work with my young grandchildren to help my daughter while she finished up school. I have had a great time with them. They are 3 and 4 years old, but it is now time to use my skills to help other young people. I love kids, and especially enjoy working one-on-one to reach a specific goal. The glow in a child's eyes when the figure out a concept they were struggling with, is amazing. I was living in Houston before this year and worked for 6 years for Houston ISD before coming up to help my daughter. I really missed my family while I was down there and so gave up the job to move here. I was strictly a reading teacher for 3 years, and my state test scores had over 90 percent of my students passing. For 3 more years I taught all subjects at a 5th grade level, and scores for math and science were in the high 80's and low 90's. I am good at what I do, and I like to work with individuals and small groups. More can be taught that way and I can hone in on what a student's strengths and weaknesses are. I praise the students for what they can do, but plan my lessons to strengthen what they struggle with. I hope that you will give me a chance to show you what progress your student can attain.
