I am certified in the state of Michigan to teach all students in grades K-8, Special Education students in grades K-12 and Psychology/Social Science at the high school level. I taught in Michigan Public Schools for 35 years in the Genesee Intermediate, Edwardsburg and Bangor school districts. Most of my experience is as an Special Education Resource Room teacher at the K-5 level, but I had the opportunity to teach 4th grade General Education classrooms for two years. While most years I taught at K-6 level, I also served as a Special Education teacher for four years at the Middle School and four years at the High School levels. For the last 10 years of my service, I also taught evening classes serving students who had been expelled from several districts, High School Credit Recovery students and adult GED and Credit Recovery students. I also coached middle school and high school football and track for ten years. After retirement, I have tutored several students individually in Mathematics, grades 8 through Algebra 1.

I have 35 years of classroom experience teaching math to all kinds of students, most of my career was servied in a district with high poverty rates and high percentage of students of students with an ESL background . Each student brings his or her own unique personality, ability and challenges, and that for every student there is the right approach to help that student succeed.

Maybe more than any other academic discipline, reading, understanding and expressing the English language is the skill that all students, regardless of their background or future aspirations, need to master in order to succeed in life. Unfortunately, students who come from ESL, Handicapped or otherwise disadvantaged backgrounds frequently experience the most challenge in this discipline. My experience has taught me to use an efficient, direct process that includes formative assessment, direct instruction of skills, testing for mastery and, if needed, reteaching and retesting until the student demonstrates master
