About Debbie

My name is Debbie. I was born in Kansas City, Kansas but was not raised here. My father was in the Army 20 years so I have lived all over the world. In his last year in the Army my parents decided to move back with Kansas City because our families were here. I have a background in finance but I have also been in the Youth Ministry for the past 17 years. I am a Para Professional for the Kansas City Kansas School District at the elementary level. I teach all grade levels k-6. I have also been a Life Coach for the Boys and Girls Club.

As a child I loved to read and as an adult I love to read. "The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." I always tell my students that reading is most important. If you can't read you will not be able to do anything else. Reading, writing and math are the foundation. You have to have a strong foundation to build from. As a Para I use different tools to teach with. As each child has a different learning style, I teach to their style of learning. When I teach math I use different manipulatives as well as the 100's chart, number line etc.. In reading, depending on the reading level I use level reader books. Before reading the book I go over vocabulary words (sight words) use magnetic letters, play dough, do back writing for spelling. I also use the videos from School House Rock to help teach. (Now that is Old School!) As a child, school house rock helped me learn my nouns, adjectives, adverbs etc... Everything I do as a Para, I will do as a tutor. I will use the same methods to help your child be successful in the classroom. I am a proponent of young people getting a good education and exploring new things. I look forward to helping your child achieve success.
