I am a retired educator with experience as a classroom teacher, teaching principal, assistant principal, and special education director. I have taught high school ecology, biology, and earth science. I taught middle school reading, language arts, math, life, earth and physical science. I also have experience as a Title I reading tutor for kindergarten through grade 4. Much of my experience was as a grade 1 and 2 looping teacher which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I believe that instruction must be relevant, and rigorous, yet individualized to meet the interests, and learning style of the student. Failure is not an option.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

As a teacher, assistant principal, and principal I am a skilled communicator. I took a class in Speech in college and excelled in it. I teach students in Public Speaking the following 5 key elements: 1. Adjust their communication to meet the needs of their audience; 2. Use an attention getting opener that also provides the audience with the topic to be addressed; 3. Speak clearly so all can hear you; 4. Summarize your main points succinctly; 5. Leave time for questions after your conclusion. I also recommend multi-modal visual aids, and a time keeper so a talk can be adjusted to fit the allotted time. I have taught students to use these techniques in grades K - 8, in all their subjects, especially Language Arts, Reading, and Science.

I have taught grades k through 12 and helped students learn how to study a subject according to their own strengths and weaknesses. Repetitive use of skills, as well as, experiencing a topic are only two of the techniques I've used. Discovering the elements of a subject help students to understand,learn and remember the rules and laws that govern it.

ADHD,

ADHD

I worked as a Special Ed Coordinator for 10 years. I have my M.Ed. and took many classes about the Exceptional Student. In all of my educational experience I specialized in working with ADD/ADHD students. I believe in individualized instruction tailored to a student's strengths to bolster their weaknesses.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

Throughout my 25 years of education experience I have worked with many students with Dyslexia. No one technique works for everyone, but I have had success with a variety of methods. Trying these techniques and using a student's feedback to determine which helps is most effective. A student may also be able to tell an instructor a technique or approach that they have found to be helpful.

Special Needs

I am a retired teacher of grades K - 12. I have an M.Ed. and have also served as a principal, assistant principal and special education director. I pride myself on leaving no stone unturned to help a student be successful. I am adept at adapting instruction in reading, writing, and math to meet the particular needs of students. I believe in individualized instruction to meet the needs of all students. Among the techniques I've used are providing highlighters to all students to encourage them to edit their own writing; partner and local community member reading; writing everyday, publishing work and sharing edited work with the local library,and emphasizing reading for meaning, etc. Failure is not an option. There is no such thing as a special education student. They only approach the world differently. An approach or resource that meets the need of special education students also meet the needs of "regular" education students.
