Oakwood University (Elementary Education)
I began my teaching career in 1998. I taught one year in the private school setting with an Adventist Academy in Decatur, Georgia and the remainder of my years with the Cobb County School District in Georgia. During my time with Cobb County, I was trained in Guided Reading, Phonics and Language Arts Instruction, Smart Board Instruction, Technology in the Classroom and The Brain Based Learning Environment. My classroom was chosen to be a model for the brain based environment within my school and I was selected by my principal to train student teachers, mentor teachers and lead out in various teacher trainings. I was also selected to to be the Testing Administrator for standardized testing. I taught 1st and 2nd grades. I was also an EIP (Early Intervention Plan) teacher for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students. I was also a part time tutor after school.
I enjoy working with young people. I have a desire to give them the tools they will need to be successful during their academic journey. My hope is to spread the joy of learning to all of the young scholars that I have an opportunity to work with during my time here on earth.
I was trained in the Open Court series for Phonics instruction.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
During my years as a first-grade teacher, I was trained by an Open Court representative. We spent several hours in teacher trainings, classroom visitations by our principals and peers and observation and feedback from the O. C. Representative. I was also selected to be a mentor teacher and model classroom.
