About Denice

I have been successfully teaching for 30+ years. I've taught Grades 2, 5 and currently I teach 1st grade. I absolutely love children and children love me. I go above and beyond to ensure that all children reach their potential. I also taught Special Education for 17 years of my teaching career. I taught K-12 in the areas of Mildly Disabilities and the Emotionally Disabled. These students proved to be the most challenging students but nevertheless, I still believed that all students can learn.

There's nothing more rewarding than seeing the fruits of your labor! Nothing pleases me more than to be out and run into a former student and often times, the parents. Because I have taught so many years, I see my former students often. They often greet me with a hug and they tell me how much I meant to them as a teacher, When I see them working at jobs ( especially those special needs students), it warms my heart. It is often said that teaching is a thankless job. I don't feel that way and as long as I feel like I make a difference...that is thanks enough for me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I have taken courses in evangelism. I am a Sunday School teacher at my church. I attend Bible Study every week. I don't proclaim to know all there is to know about the Bible but I do know that the answer to all issues can be found in there! I will research until I find it. The Lord wants us to spread His Word and that includes teaching.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Elementary Education in some capacity for 30+ years. I have taught Grades 1, 3, and 5 in Regular Elementary. I also have a degree in Special Education (Mild Disabilities) K-12 and I have taught all grades in that area.

Handwriting

In teaching Elementary Education I consider Handwriting to still be an important part of the educational process. Although it is not officially a part of the curriculum, I still include it in my instructional day.
