About Kirsten


Bio

There is no such thing as a student that can't learn..... This has always been my philosophy in every teaching situation that I have encountered. I am a strong believer in helping learners become motivated to learn because you can not "make" someone learn. Learning comes from within and a teacher provides different ways for students to learn. They present material in a variety of ways and find the modality that is right for the student.

There is no such thing as a student that can't learn..... This has always been my philosophy in every teaching situation that I have encountered. I am a strong believer in helping learners become motivated to learn because you can not "make" someone learn. Learning comes from within and a teacher provides different ways for students to learn. They present material in a variety of ways and find the modality that is right for the student.
I have taught all elementary grades, I was an Elementary Principal for 12 years, I have taught graduate level classes at the university, and I am currently working with ELL students and their parents. I know the expectations of the Common Core, and I have used past assessments to find the best way to deliver instruction. I love to see the light bulb turn on and work very hard to discover the best way to help students learn and retain information.

I have written rubrics for writing in the elementary level. I have also supervised all grades in the reading standards and helped with lesson plans to teach the vocabulary skills. I have used any different graphic organizing techniques with all ages.

I have taught k-5 grades. I was an elementary principal for 12 years. I have seen all of the different teaching trends and have seen the most successful teachers. I know how children learn.... It's just the different instructional techniques and ways of delivering the instruction and motivating the learner that makes tacking challenging and fun! Each child is unique. Everyone has different needs. Tutoring often is the push that a child needs to get them on track or close to grade level, or even the enrichment that they are not receiving in school.

I am excited about the opportunity to help learners of any age. I have a flexible schedule that can work for most anyone.
