Bio

I am currently a retired Arizona elementary school teacher. I have been teaching since 2003, but retired in 2014 after I broke my right arm.

For the past year I have been tutoring 2nd and 3 rd grade reading and math. I have taught grades 2 through 7 in every subject. As you can see, I really didn't...

I am currently a retired Arizona elementary school teacher. I have been teaching since 2003, but retired in 2014 after I broke my right arm. After I retired, I took a position as a 7th grade math teacher as a long term substitute teacher. The following year, I went back full time to teach 6th grade science and social studies. For the past year I have been tutoring 2nd and 3 rd grade reading and math. I have taught grades 2 through 7 in every subject. As you can see, I really didn't retire. I have also been the Director of religious education at our church since November, 2009.

Prior to going into education I worked in the Steel Industry as Quality Assurance Coordinator, obtaining ISO certification for our division. I also worked as a Merchandise Analyst better known as a steel purchasing agent. After 23 years with the company, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of being a teacher, so I went back to school and obtained my Master's degree in Education.

As you might guess, by now, I love kids and I want them to have a great future. As for my own children, one of them is a High School Principal in Wisconsin and the other one is a Chiropractor in Illinois. My desire is to make kids love learning. I think I achieved that with my own children and many of the children that I have taught over the years.

Math must mean something to a children before they want to learn it. I try to make math real for the kids by using true to life experience to help kids understand it. I use manipulatives (clocks, buttons, cards, cash...), books, practice, real experience and anything else I can think of to make math fun. Kids learn if it is not work for them. I also understand the career and college curriculum.

As a certified teacher, I have taught writing using the stoplight format. I use colors to explain and identify parts of speech. I use phonics as well as whole word (Fry's Word list) reading skills and I teach digraphs, word blends, etc.

To wrap all of this up, I typically try to have s
