About Steven

Hello: I have been an elementary classroom teacher for over thirty years, I have taught in both the private school system, and in the Montgomery County Public School System for more than thirty years.

I retired from MCPS after teaching for twenty years. This has provided me with the opportunity to pursue other challenges and responsibilities in the fields of education, curriculum development and integrating educational technology into the classroom.

I continue to teach kindergarten through fifth grade as a substitute classroom teacher. Being a substitute teacher has allowed me to stay current with the Core Curriculum, and to be knowledgeable about the new testing procedures which are taking place in most of the counties in Maryland.

I have provided home instruction, and private tutorial services throughout my teaching career. My primary strengths are in the areas of math, reading, and language arts. I have provided math and reading support in the classroom, to smaller groups of students, and in a one-on-one process.

I have a BS in Elementary Education, (having been certified to teach kindergarten through eighth grade), and an M Ed in Educational Technology, both from the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland. I have always enjoyed working with children, because of their perspective about life. I feel as though I have succeeded when they meet or surpass a particular required skill.
