Home school challenging? Public school frustrating? Private school difficult?
I have taught all three! I have experience working with students with learning differences as well as college prep high achievers. I am a teacher from my heart and enjoy planning unique and motivating lessons for kids like yours.
I graduated from Texas A&M, taught in the Austin area in public schools for 4 years and then I started my family. I had six children over the next 8 years. I home schooled them in all subjects, running various co-ops in my home or church for about 14 years. We studied Bible, Latin, music, history, math, wrote novels and essays, and read lots of great, great books. For the last five years, I have taught 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grades in a private school and served as the English Department Head.
I have two children with disabilities, whose educational challenges provided me the motivation and opportunity to develop strategies for helping kids with dyslexia and nonverbal learning disorders. I also attended training and gained a Level One Certificate as a therapist for the National Institute for Learning Disabilities.
I believe your child can learn if given customized lessons. I enjoy trying different, sometimes unconventional approaches until something clicks. Please email me and let's talk about your unique needs. I like students and I like parents! I want to listen to your story and see where I can make a difference!
