About Betty

Long ago I was born in the small town of Albion, Michigan. I graduated 50 years ago and went on to college. I attended one year and then came home married and started a family. Not unusual for that time. After a few years my marriage failed and I started with my goal of graduating from college before I died. Great huh? I went to several different colleges in Battle Creek, and Jackson, Michigan, After attending Spring Arbor University for a couple years I transferred to Baker College In Jackson, MI. At about 45 years of age I realized I better increase my studies if I wanted to accomplish my goal of graduating from college before I died. I didn't think I had until I was 90 to complete. At that time Baker College started an accelerated course for obtaining a degree in business. I applied and was accepted. This course took eighteen months and you took a new course every five weeks. At the end you had to write a fifty page thesis using all the course information you had taken. I did it, but then everyone asked what I was going to do with it? What I did was begin tutoring children in school. Kindergarten through High School. For 15 years that is what I have done and have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Besides going to school we have raised a family of three children. In addition we have five grandchildren and 2 and a half great grandchildren. I still sub in school and volunteer in second grade a couple days a week. I enjoy helping people and will probably keep doing that until I can't anymore.

I have subbed over the years and I am able to help students understand what they are suppose to do. I have found being able to read for content really helps and if that is what they need I help them learn to do that

My family calls me "the professor because I ask them to speak using correct English. I have taken several writing classes and am familiar with literature as I have read extensively

I realized a few years ago I love to teach and I am patient and want students to enjoy learning so they can succeed. I am not a "pushover" but I am realistic in my goals for you. I believe that everyone has deep inside them the hunger to learn and to learn well.
