About Theresa

Hello,
I have been a substitute teacher in the Mt. Vernon School System for the last 8 years I was a den mother for Pack 236, I worked for the school in the kitchen and as a room mother also helping on field trips, and holiday parties. I was an international coordinator for high school foreign exchange students for three years and followed their progress for the year that they were here. I coordinated a dozen or so students, as well as hosting a few in my home.
I attended Ball State University, and was taking special education classes. I am currently a student at Ivy Tech Community College working on my MS Excel Certification, which I should get in November, my bookkeeping certificate and my payroll certificate which I should get Spring of 2016.
I do not believe in stern control of a child, or raising my voice, or berating them for any reason. Teaching them kindness and compassion by example is one of my goals. My teaching philosophy has always been “make if fun”, with games, drawing, singing, dancing. I think this enhances creativity.

I went through the Catholic school system for all 12 years. They emphasized phonics and grammar. My absolute favorite teacher, was my high school English teacher. I took English writing courses at Ball State, but I have always liked grammar, and it seems to me, if you can’t speak the language, you will have a hard time in a job interview as an adult.

I love to see the proverbial "light bulb" go off in a child's head, when they :"got it" I still remember vividly the first time I tied my shoes, a milestone I was so proud of, and those “aha” moments influence how a child can feel about learning. I want to see the face of an ‘aha’ moment.

If your child is having difficulty and maybe is a bit shy, or anxious, I am a mom, who likes to teach. If you need a warm fuzzy Mrs. Doubtfire, I would be a good choice.
