My teaching style is cooperative and participatory whether they are adults, teenagers or younger children. I assume my students are self-motivated to learn, improve and have fun! I use traditional classroom methods as well as visual and auditory re-enforcement, real life examples and the occasional field trip. I teach all levels of students and specifically instruct Geometry, Writing, and Science - Physical, Life, Earth Sciences. Most of my students are ESOL as well so we incorporate learning English as part of the main subject.
I am a U.S. Citizen born in State of Virginia, but have lived all over the country and traveled worldwide. I am a mother of two daughters that have been educated in the PWC school district. In addition, I have a child on an IEP for a learning disability. I have been a Girl Scout Leader and volunteer for over 5 years. Also, I volunteer as a CASA or Court Appointed Special Advocate for Abused and Neglected Children (thus I have been background checked by court system).
I am located in the Northern Virginia - Manassas region.
My undergraduate degree is from Penn State. My first Master's Degree is from Hawaii Pacific University. I am working on a 2nd master's degree/PhD at Regent University in Special Education (Learning Disabilities, Autism, Emotional Disabilities). I am also certified to teach ESOL students.
