As a teacher in Plano Independent School District, I frequently taught children who were at risk of failure because of cultural and learning differences and I really appreciate the challenge and rewards that such a student presents. I also enjoy the challenge in teaching English language learners and believe that I can now form a stronger connection as I have a shared experience with these students, having lived in a non-English speaking country for some time.
Although I have taught mostly technology, my first certification is in science. As a long-term substitute, I worked in the Special Programs Center in Plano while working toward my teaching certification hours. There I found myself teaching math and history in addition to science. I have also attended the Plano Writing Academy for Teachers, a workshop that is available by invitation only. I also have advanced degrees in accounting and business.
I believe that all students can learn but that many need the extra attention that a tutor can provide to be completely successful.
