About Bette

I am a teacher who has had a lot of experience with elementary students, especially in the reading area and developed my own phonics system through which I had great success in reading instruction.

For many years, I also taught high-school English, from grades 9 through 12, and this included drama classes, public-speaking, grammar, research-paper-guidance, and literature.

My most recent full-time teaching position, before retirement, was as a middle-school Spanish teacher and this included instruction for the State Spanish Proficiency Test where my student results were very successful.

I have also taught French as a non-certified teacher and have performed as a tutor at the Huntington Learning Center in Florida.
