About Linda


Bio

I taught in public schools for 30 years. After retiring from teaching, I went on to be the IT person in a middle school for another seven years. I retired from that position and then did substituting for an additional 3 years. I am certified to teach in most subjects from grades kindergarten to seniors.

I taught in public schools for 30 years. After retiring from teaching, I went on to be the IT person in a middle school for another seven years. I retired from that position and then did substituting for an additional 3 years. I am certified to teach in most subjects from grades kindergarten to seniors.

I have taught mostly in the middle school with a few years teaching in elementary and high school. The subjects varied from year to year but most of my teaching and substituting was done in science and math. However, I have, also, taught reading. I am highly qualified, according to No Child Left Behind law to teach Language Arts, reading, all math levels up to Algebra 1, and science at the middle school level.

I taught Math for twenty of my thirty years of teaching. I have worked with students from age 6 to 18. Most of my teaching has been at the General Math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra level. I have tutored students in math through Algebra 1. The majority of my students say I make math easy to understand.

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I have instructed students in how to do spreadsheets and how to use them to display data by graphing. All data gathered during an experiment in my class had to be displayed as a table and as an appropriate graph. I also taught students how to do functions to manipulate the data. I took a class on the different things you can do using excel.
Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is the primary word processing program I used during my teaching. I used it to do all documents for my use and for student use. When I was the IT person, I taught 6th graders how to use Microsoft Word so they could be successful in their classes at middle school. I showed them how to save properly, access their flash drive, change the margins and orientation of a document, insert tables and pictures to name a few.
