About Gerry

I am a 44 year old father of two wonderful children. I am currently a graduate student at Augusta University, in my second year studying for my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have enjoyed working with students from Kindergarten through 5th grade. I homeschooled my youngest child and she has plans to attend Augusta University next year as a freshman, working towards her Bachelor's Degree in Biology. Her ultimate plans are to earn her Master's in Marine Biology. I also have extensive personal experiences in my life that have given me a zest for helping others to enjoy learning. In 2002, I moved to Europe and worked as a performing musician until 2003. I am also a potter and enjoy selling my works online. In 2013, my family and I purchased 41 acres and a cabin in Northern Maine and spent a great deal of time learning about the environment and hard work.
I believe that children should be able to relate learning (all subjects) to things in their lives and their reality. A student's personal interests, likes, and dislikes should all be considered when planning instruction. Above all, a safe and effective learning environment is key to a successful education.

In 2011, I completed my Master's thesis on the impacts of Nuclear engineering and in 2010 I researched, prepared, and wrote grants that were accepted by the National Science Foundation. I have won several awards for my writing abilities and have an innate ability in writing.

I take a student's interests and weave subject material through multiple subjects. A student's personal interest, familiarity, and objectives are considered when planning instruction.

I am currently in my second year of earning my Master of Teaching in Early Childhood Education at Augusta University, with a 4.0 GPA. I have taken and passed my GACE tests and will graduate in 2016. I have over a year of classroom teaching experience in three area schools and also substitute for the district.

I believe in making learning fun, interesting, and personally relevant. I believe everyone deserves a quality education that focuses on their goals.
