I graduated from high school in 1983 and have taken some college courses at our local university. I love children and have a history of volunteer work at our local elementary schools while my children were in school. I have done both one-on-one student help as well as full class help. I am skilled in writing and verbal communication. I was in band through my senior year of high school and did some student teaching for my band director at the junior high. I had several opportunities to direct the symphonic and jazz bands, as well. I played the trumpet and french horn in school. I sing, write music, and lead the singing at our church. I have also taught musical sight reading. While in high school, I was complemented many times by my English teacher about how well I wrote. I work well with young people and have a knack for being able to communicate knowledge on a young person's level. Adults have a variety of ways they learn. Children are no different. I am patient while teaching so that I am able to discern each child's learning style.
