I am an ordained minister of the Christian faith and my husband and I have taught Bible studies for Prison Fellowship Ministry at Ramsey and Carol Young Prisons in the Houston area.
Bible learning is one of my passions and Scripture study has brought me into a more "level" state of being.
Although I am a Christian, most of my students are not, but adherents to the Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, or other beliefs. I respect that and do not attempt to proselytize.
I received a BS in Education from the University of Houston in 1965. My major is in English. I have taught preschool, 5th grade and adults.
My specialty is in writing and for years I wrote news and web articles for a large medical practice.
I look forward to working with children, as well as adults,who seek to improve their English, reading and writing skills.

As a former 5th grade teacher, I know that good study/observation habits are the basis of success in everything we do. "Paying attention" is most of the battle in acquiring knowledge. The secret to paying attention is being interested in what the teacher or book is saying. How do we do that?
For history, government and social studies, for example, we need to take notes on key facts and ideas. Review what we have written and summarize by rewriting the main points.
