As a dedicated and creative public school teacher of thirty-three years, a recently certified Washington state certified STARS trainer and a tutor for five years at Shoreline Community College and privately with elementary students, I have successfully worked with students of diverse backgrounds and ages. I work to empower students to draw from their strengths and develop multiple strategies for acquiring skills and knowledge. I love that moment when a student has that 'aha' moment. As a fluent speaker of French and Russian, I have a broad cultural and literary background.
