I have taught grades one through eight, I was a head basketball coach for two years, an assistant basketball coach for two years, served in the United States Marine Corps Reserves from 1995-2003, I enjoy exercising especially walking, stretching, and some weight lifting. I write, read, reflect, and work consistently hard to help ensure the success of my students. I have two sons, one who is seven and one who is five. We actively participate in bicycling, hiking, playing baseball, and swimming. I promise I will work extremely hard to help your child improve, academically, and feel better about where they are as students.
I read, write and listen well. I teach how good readers think and how good writers do. I embrace the process and honor the effort reading and writing take. Finally, I am patient because I know how challenging reading and writing honestly are.
I have been exposed to baseball and basketball honestly since I was born. I enjoy these games and look at them as fantastic ways to teach dedication, perseverance, and the importance of working for a greater good.
If you want assistance from someone who will help you improve, who will not judge you, and who will be patient, then I am that person. I promise you will become a better student if you dedicate yourself, value consistency, and embrace the effort it takes for improvement. My name is Rance M., and I am entering my 17th year teaching.
