About MICHELLE

I am employed full time and am married, with 3 teen-aged sons. I work as a part-time tutor for an autistic student, which is both enlightening and challenging at the same time. My full-time job is in Monticello and I live in Bement. I am a American Heart Association CPR/AED instructor and I teach classes in Bloodborne Pathogens and First Aid. I teach a program called Adopt a Medic to the various 2nd grade classrooms in Piatt County through Kirby Medical Center.

I received my Associates degree from Parkland College in Elementary Education. While teaching is not my full-time job, I enjoy working with various group of people to help them learn. I have a passion for making someone understand a concept that may previously have been foreign to them and I frequently apply this passion to helping my own children understand their schoolwork when they are struggling.

My strong suits in High School and College were Math and English. I continuously take online courses in multiple disciplines to keep my knowledge fresh. I have been refreshed in my learning with my job as a tutor to an Autistic student and in aiding my own children in their schoolwork. Math makes sense to me and is logical.

I have a patience when teaching something that I don't have in other areas. I enjoy the challenge of taking a concept that a student is not understanding and putting it in a different perspective so that it makes sense to them. The best reward is to see a student able to understand and apply a concept that has not made sense to them previously.
