About Katherine


Bio

I am a retired teacher of 32 years. I have a Master's Degree in education and have much experience with tutoring. I like to teach using all levels of learning. I feel a student learns best by exploring and doing rather than just reading. My passion is English. I love reading and writing. I have published a poem and love creative writing. I am also proficient in Photoshop CS4. I excel in editing photography. I am married and my husband and I travel on our Goldwing motorcycle all ove...

I am a retired teacher of 32 years. I have a Master's Degree in education and have much experience with tutoring. I like to teach using all levels of learning. I feel a student learns best by exploring and doing rather than just reading. My passion is English. I love reading and writing. I have published a poem and love creative writing. I am also proficient in Photoshop CS4. I excel in editing photography.

I am married and my husband and I travel on our Goldwing motorcycle all over the US. I like for students to write about experiences they have had as this type of writing has meaning. My educational teaching was in the elementary grades, but I have also taught computer skills to adults.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught school for over 30 years. I taught Kindergarten for several years. I also have taught Remedial Reading for grades 1-3 for 3 years and Remedial Reading and Math for grades 6-8 for 2 years. The major part on my career was spent teaching 4/5 grades, where I taught reading, language arts (spelling and English), and Social Studies. I have tutored many children or all ages. I feel students learn best by discovering the answers themselves rather than having someone just give them the answers. In Social Studies, I taught through doing units where the students did their own research and then incorporated that into special projects and demonstrations. In reading, I taught using great pieces on literature like "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," by C.S. Lewis, through discussions and making connections with the real world. I was also the school portfolio trainer and had over 120 students prepare their portfolios.
