About Barbara


Bio

I am very passionate about a child's education, and the fact that every student can succeed given the right amount of instruction, self discipline, mutual respect, caring, creativity and fun. Learning takes place when a student feels good about themselves and their accomplishments, big or small. I have been an educator for the past 25 years, and even though I am now not officially in a school, I still keep myself abreast of the newest and most successful ideas in teaching.

I am very passionate about a child's education, and the fact that every student can succeed given the right amount of instruction, self discipline, mutual respect, caring, creativity and fun. Learning takes place when a student feels good about themselves and their accomplishments, big or small. I have been an educator for the past 25 years, and even though I am now not officially in a school, I still keep myself abreast of the newest and most successful ideas in teaching.

I was an Elementary School educator in both the mainstream classroom as well as self-contained Special Ed classrooms. I pride myself on my patience and understanding, when learning a concept or just tying shoes can cause frustration to a student. I take the time to offer multiple ways of learning that is geared to the child's level of understanding, attention span, and interests. Who ever said that learning can't be fun and creative, while teaching the concepts necessary to succeed in school? I never talk down to a student and try to see life from their point of view. I tell corny jokes, play tricks, love to sing and dance, and be dramatic, as this sometimes is what it takes for a child to remember and learn. Reading and phonics are my forte, though Social Studies and American History are my favorite subjects to still learn about. Math can be tricky for a child, especially if the foundation of rote facts are not grasped first.
The one thing I am most proud of in my career, is that many of my past students contact me still with their thoughts about life and thanks. It's the best feeling to know you have truly touched a life in a positive way.

Do not hesitate to contact me via WyzAnt with any questions you may have. I would be happy to answer.

Theater

I have been involved in behind the curtain and performing for community theatre groups for over 10 years. I also directed and stage managed our elementary school plays and talent shows for many years. My daughter is in musical theatre and I was the President of the High School Drama Parents' organization. While in college, I completed Drama for Children classes, as well as producing children's theatre performances.

Public Speaking

Qualifications for public speaking can include formal classwork, or just having the confidence in appearing in front of an audience and get your point across. As a teacher, one must be able to be a public speaker every day, whether they are in front of a class, speaking with parents, or meeting with peers. As a teacher for over 20 years as well as a performer in community theatre, I feel quite confident to tutor in public speaking.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an Elementary School educator for the past 20 years, the last 11 years, full time, with Galloway Township Public Schools in Galloway, NJ. I have taught in all grades 1-6. I also was a teacher of the gifted and talented, grades 1-3 for the county consortium program on Saturdays during the school year. My resume is available upon request.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

As an elementary school teacher for over 20 years, I have taught 1st graders D'Nealian handwriting methods, as well as teaching 4th graders manuscript writing techniques. In recent years, with the introduction of the tablet in the classroom, handwriting time has taken a back seat and children are now self taught with little formal modeling. I am very qualified as an elementary educator to model and tutor students in handwriting. WyzAnt has already approved my qualification in Elementary k-6, handwriting is/was a part of the elementary curriculum.

As an educator with over 25 years experience, I had the privilege of being elected to The George Washington University Parents' Advisory Council for a 3 year term. During this time I worked beside college deans, admissions officers, and others, to ensure student life was enhanced and policy was created. I also ran an independent company that helped high school students seek admission to colleges in which I helped edit and fill out essays and financial aid forms.
