About Terry

To teach is to change a life forever! I am a special education teacher at heart and have taught K -12th grade in the special education, public school setting. I have also taught private school and homeschooled my 2 children from Pre K -10th grade. My eldest is dyslexic and has, by far, stretched and enriched my teaching experience. I cater to the student's learning style and am intuitive to their needs. I have also done a lot of volunteer teaching where my creative knack shines. In college, I loved John Dewey who said, "Learn to do by doing."

A few of my "success" stories are as follows: When teaching division to my son, I had 15 Chuck E. Cheese tokens and there were 3 kids. I asked him to give each one an equal amount and then told him, "You just did division." To teach place value to my younger son, I used a penny for ones, a dime for tens and a dollar for hundreds: he got it! While teaching 6th grade in a private school, I consider my greatest accomplishment to be tutoring my D- student in English Grammar and turning him into a C plus student (79), in just one quarter. There is no greater joy for me than to figure out how to "reach" and "teach" concepts to children who otherwise would just be left behind.
