About Tammy

I was raised by parents who both worked in education. My sisters and I were taught to value school and to see it as an investment. My passion has always been art and I went on to study it in college. I have a BA in Fine Arts and a minor in French. After college, I worked in the photography industry as a photo stylist. When my boys came along, I made the decision to change careers and began working in the schools. I have worked as a substitute teacher on and off for roughly 15 years. I have also taught art in the local elementary schools and formulated my own schedule of projects based on the school system's curriculum.

I am a recently licensed insurance agent. The freedom in my schedule would allow me to help students. I am primarily concerned with the fact that our children are not learning good study habits and skills in school. This is a HUGE part of how I teach. A little bit daily. Not a cramming of information which they will immediately forget. Helping them use their resources and teach them the confidence to ask for help when needed. My goal is to see the 'lightbulb' go off and a true understanding is gained.
