I have been a teacher for the past 33 years - I love teaching! I have a Master's Degree in Education, and am certified to teach English as a Second Language for high school students, Elementary education for grades K - 8 and Special Education for grades K - 12. I have experience teaching elementary students through seniors in high school as a special educator and team teacher, as well as having experience as an English as a Second Language teacher. I treat each student with care and respect and am able to help students to be successful.

I use many different methods to reach my students; I get to know each one an determine which methods work best for him or her. Some of my approaches to teaching are: a multi-sensory approach where the student uses as many of their senses as possible to gain and remember information; breaking words and phrases or assignments down into small, achievable parts; role playing where the student acts out the concepts being covered; helping the student to make flash cards, so he or she can practice at home; repetition; etc. I have used many methods of teaching and have seen my students enjoy what they are doing, which has led to to each students' success. I am looking forward to working with ESL students, outside of the school setting.
