About Sandy

After recently retiring from 35 years in education, 24 as a teacher and 11 as a principal, I have found myself missing direct contact with students and helping them achieve his/her potentials. Most of my expertise is in middle school Language Arts and Social Studies, but I have also worked in elementary. In addition, I have taught classes specifically for gifted students. As a principal, I created a school which put nurturing and loving our students as one of our top priorities. Failure was not an option. It was just part of the path to success!

As a teacher and administrator, I specialized in integration of all subjects. Due to this, I was asked to be the Interim Director of Middle Schools for Moore County. In addition, I was chosen to be one of 60 educators in the USA and Canada to go to China to work with educators there on how to integrate the curriculum. I also worked as a facilitator to help schools with their becoming accredited with The Southern Association of Accreditation.

My goal in tutoring is to move a student from fear of failure to believing in him/herself. So much of today's learning is about test taking. I want to help each student return to the joy of learning and become a lifelong learner. I am available during the week, except Tuesdays, from noon until 6pm.
