I have a 40-year span in education. I was a middle school English and French teacher for seven years, then was transferred to the high school where I restarted the French program (French I-IV) and a 10th Grade and 9th Grade Honors English Program. I became the high school assistant principal for two years and then was asked to become the high school principal, which I did for five years. I stepped down so I could go back into teaching and finish my PhD. I taught English and French for three years and then was asked to return as high school principal for two years to help groom the assistant principal for the principal's position. I agreed and did that for four years before stepping down a second time to go back into teaching. Over the 30 years in education my heart has ALWAYS been in the classroom and I have always been led back to the classroom.
I have been teaching at the university part time as an assistant adjunct professor since 1991 teaching courses in educational assessment, qualitative research, curriculum development, professional development, and diversity. I also supervise students during their field experiences and their student teaching experiences and students doing their administrative internships.
I was "Norwalk City Schools Teacher of the Year" in 1986 and Ohio Guidance Counselors Association Administrator of the Year in 1991. I have been named an Ashland University Professional Fellow (which is like an "adjunct of the year") in 2006, 2009 and 2014.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE what I do. I LOVE working with students of all ages and want to continue to do so for as long as I can! I have a 40-year span in education. I was a middle school English and French teacher for seven years, then was transferred to the high school where I restarted the French program (French I-IV) and a 10th Grade and 9th Grade Honors
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been a Sunday school teacher for many years and attend church on a regular basis. While I am not an expert on the Bible I do feel I have enough knowledge and background that with a text or study guide or a bit of preparation I could do Bible studies.
I have 40 years of experience in education and qualify in this area. As an assistant adjunct at Ashland University who teaches a graduate course in Curriculum Development we spend time discussing the Common Core movement so I am familiar with this.
I have taught English 8th grade thru 12th grade, AP English, French level 1 thru 4 and college level classes, and graduate level classes. I currently supervise student teachers who are doing their student teaching for their license.
Having been a student, teacher, high school administrator and college/university professor I feel I have good study habits. Obviously, my study habits got me through undergraduate and graduate schools as I have a BA, MEd and a PhD. SO, I must have some good study skills. Having three sons has also held over the years teaching good study skills. - all three graduates with GPA's above 3.0 with the middle graduating class Valedictorian with a GPA of 4.76 with a PhD in Biomedical Engineering and is a research professor at UCLA.
