Bio

After graduation from college, I enrolled in Montessori training. After completing my training, I taught 5 years in a private Montessori ungraded primary school. While my children were young I worked at various part time jobs. As a teacher in a recreation center in Richardson, TX, I designed and taught several different preschool classes. As my children entered elementary school, I was a substitute teacher. While substituting I had one school in which I did a long term assignment. ...

After graduation from college, I enrolled in Montessori training. After completing my training, I taught 5 years in a private Montessori ungraded primary school. While my children were young I worked at various part time jobs. As a teacher in a recreation center in Richardson, TX, I designed and taught several different preschool classes. As my children entered elementary school, I was a substitute teacher. While substituting I had one school in which I did a long term assignment. Through this process, I began tutoring a couple of students during the summer to help them keep up. Tutoring continued for several years for one of the students. I continued substituting until my children were older. I also taught 2 different years in a preschool class of 3-5 year olds. For one year I was a Director of a child care facility in the inner city that serviced mainly refugees. Most recently I taught 2nd grade in the KCMO Public schools. While teaching in this typically Hispanic school I took a graduate class (SIOP) through UMKC on teaching my ESL students. With the different experiences I have, I am familiar with many different reading and math curriculum and can easily learn new ones. I believe phonics are an important beginning to reading. My Montessori experience helps me in making or acquiring hands-on materials to help with learning.
As a tutor, I expect the student to work hard but I enjoy celebrating each success with them. I find that there are learning games to use as rewards for their hard work. Taking an interest in my students, I will seek out the best method for teaching each individual student. With enthusiasm and joy I enjoy teaching students to do their best and be successful learners.
As a vibrant and joyful person, I will bring an excitement for learning. I believe each person can learn with the appropriate environment, tools, and experiences. Each accomplishment should be celebrated. I enjoy a challenge and will work hard to ensure success for each student.
