Bio

I have worked as a substitute, paraeducator and teacher for more than twenty years. In the 1990's, I held a California credential for teaching elementary school general education. I volunteered and substituted while raising my kids during the 2000's and have spent much of this decade earning my Master's Degree in Special Education from Towson University

I have worked as a substitute, paraeducator and teacher for more than twenty years. In the 1990's, I held a California credential for teaching elementary school general education. I volunteered and substituted while raising my kids during the 2000's and have spent much of this decade earning my Master's Degree in Special Education from Towson University
The thing I love the best about teaching is that shared pride and joy when the student feels successful. I am good at getting to know my students as learners and as kids. I am their cheerleader as they work to understand or finish an assignment. I love creating just the right materials to make lessons entertaining enough for understanding to slip in and stay put. What keeps me coming back and back to teaching, are the moments when I get to see that proud little smile and hear, "I get it!".

Elementary Math

I worked this year in an elementary school, supporting students who needed extra help. My students and coworkers supported my belief that I am able to help kids "get" math concepts. I am willing and able to try multiple means of explaining how and why until we find a method that makes sense to the student.
