About Barbara

I have been a substitute teacher for more than 10 years in elementary, middle, and high school across all subject areas. My Bachelors Degree from Kent State University in Ohio is in Secondary Education -English/Psychology. My Masters Degree from Northern Illinois University is in Reading. I later received a Paralegal Certification from Elgin Community College and added Social Studies to my Teacher Certification. I have also studied ESL and Special Education.

I have four children and five grandchildren. My major hobby is music. I studied piano for 10 years at Hruby Conservatory in Cleveland, Ohio and also Classical Guitar. I love working with children and helping them improve their skill levels and broaden their horizons.

I have been substitute teaching for more than 10 years. I graduated 13th in my high school class and was in the National Honor Society. I was awarded a scholarship at 16 for placing in the National Merit Scholarship Test. I graduated cum laude from Kent State and with high honors in Paralegal studies. My job while in college was with a publishing company in Cleveland proofreading and editing publications.

I encourage students to contact me and learn more and schedule lessons.
