If I could make a living out of learning I would, it's an absolute passion of mine. I chose psychology so that I can get into emotional developmental issues with a focus towards those with special needs and a need or outlet to express themselves. My own son has Asperger's, PDD, & Bipolar and we developed a system where we love to learn together and dissect things to make them connect. Aside from myself, he is the only person in our family that could tell you what year four scores and seven years ago is, who quoted it, and why the speech was so controversial.
I am almost done with my Masters of Science in Psychology through University of Phoenix. I am the probably the most organized, time-management, obsessive-compulsive person you could find. I am passionate about equal rights and believe that the only prejudice should be not being prejudice. I want my children and students not to learn the topic, I want them to understand what made it a topic and the possibilities it creates. I encourage exploration in all subjects because what seems like a silly assignment has depth most students miss out on.
My strongest abilities are connecting with students on their individual levels, English, grammar, any elementary school subjects and most middle school until math turns to algebra, calculus, etc., or English turns to Spanish or French or German. I am very creative and have absolute conviction behind everything I teach, state, or expand upon, even in classes now I find classmates that contradict themselves from their own articles; fact checking and research are vital.
Lastly, there is nothing more important that I learned at UNT is that it takes the right person to be able to connect the subject to material the child/student already understands so that understanding takes place. Wealth is power - power is knowledge - and knowing what one does not know is more powerful than what has already been taught.
