Only my love of life and my granddaughters could equal my love of education and working with students. I received my M.A. in Education through Regis University, and also hold a valid Colorado Professional Teacher License in the areas of Early Childhood Education, Secondary Social Studies, and Special Education- moderate needs. For the past 18 years, I was employed as a special needs educator at the high school level and taught Pre-algebra and Algebra 1 through individualized instruction, and co-taught World History and Algebra 1, in the regular classroom. I have also co-taught in the area of reading instruction, as well as provided individualized instruction for reading and study skills in the resource room. I believe that each student is unique with their own learning style, who deserve the respect and opportunity to learn in a manner in which they are able to meet with success.

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.
I taught math to special education students at the high school level for 18 years and many of these students were still functioning at the elementary level in math, for which I provided instruction.
I participated in the F.A.S.T program training and also co-taught the program with an experienced reading teacher that had taught at Denver Academy where the program was initiated. I also used the program for individualized instruction at the high school level for students with special needs. I also have been through the Linda Mood training and used this program as well.
I have a valid Colorado Professional Teacher License for Special Education - Moderate Needs - and also an M.A. in Education from Regis University. I have been employed by Jefferson County Public Schools as a special needs teacher at the secondary level for the past 18 years, until I retired this past school year.
