About Mary

Teaching isn't something I do, it is who I am. I sort of fell into teaching, but the minute I became a teacher I knew it was what I was meant to do. There really is no greater joy for me then watching students grow and culminate skills for the subjects I am offering guidance in. I have taught, tutored and coached children of all ages and levels in a number of different areas - art, swimming, fitness and guitar. My approach in all these areas is very similar. I believe that to learn something thoroughly, it is important to approach the subject at hand from the fundaments and move from there.Things such as music, art and health history are important stepping stones to acquire a greater understanding in any field of study. The lessons would include relevant discussion, exercises, demonstrations and hands on learning activities. Students would be expected to acquire skills to high level of understanding before moving onto a new skills. I have been teaching and coaching in these areas for over 2 decades. In those years I have learned many strategies and approaches in order to help all types of learners from hands on to audio to visual and any combinations of such. As many students as I have had the pleasure of guiding in these areas I can not wait to guide that many and more to growth and accomplishment in whatever area they are willing to learn.
I have taught at the Academy of Our Lady of Guam for 23 years. The subjects that I have taught are in swimming, art, fitness, humanities, and P.E./Health. I have certifications in teaching, WSI, CPR/first aide and taken part in many related workshop programs. My university years at Michigan Tech. focused on a liberal arts program. I have entered works and when some awards in many art shows and galleries. I have travel through Europe as a part of an educational program where we experienced many architectural structures and museums. I have coached for several local Guam swim teams, all levels of swimmers, and have attended many international and local swim meets. I have also tutored numerous individuals of all different ages in guitar lessons for 3 decades.
