I’m a teacher at heart; I love sharing information and helping others learn new concepts and ideas. My undergraduate degree is a dual major in both History and Secondary Education. After graduating in 2009, I worked for a year as a teacher’s aide in a 5th grade special education classroom. This year I have been teaching United States History to 11th graders and tutoring elementary students in Math. I did well in school, though academic weaknesses in grammar and spelling made it more difficult to receive A grades. This has enabled me to understand and better relate to students that struggle in school. My patient, calm, and steady personality also benefits me as a teacher. These traits give me the ability to not be easily flustered and to calm down a student who his frustrated. Beyond instruction, students need to know that their teacher really cares about them and is not there just to receive a paycheck each week. From the start, I make sure my students know that I’m there for them. I do this by being friendly and listening to the student working to be as fair as I can and still get the work done. All the rules and work are in place to help them be successful. My overall goal is that every one of my students grows in knowledge of the content and grows in confidence of their own ability to learn more on their own.

American History, European History, Government & Politics, World History
