Bio

I'm a former elementary school teacher of 8 years. I have been certified to teach and am seeking Ohio certification since recently moving from out of state. I taught at a public school from 1994-2000. I have been homeschooling my own children, teaching online history, literature, and writing classes, and also teaching a variety of subjects in local co-ops over the last 12 years. I especially enjoy working with children one-on-one or in small groups.

I'm a former elementary school teacher of 8 years. I have been certified to teach and am seeking Ohio certification since recently moving from out of state. I taught at a public school from 1994-2000. I have been homeschooling my own children, teaching online history, literature, and writing classes, and also teaching a variety of subjects in local co-ops over the last 12 years. I especially enjoy working with children one-on-one or in small groups.

I love learning and love to help instill a love for learning in my students through fun activities and games, where applicable, and with older children (middle to high school), I especially enjoy engaging in rhetoric discussions to help students realize how their learning applies to their current day events and affects their lives.

I am well versed in tailoring curriculum to best suit the child and their learning style, and incorporate student and parent feedback to make sure appropriate progress is being made.
