I have raised four wonderful children and continue to learn about how to support children's needs in becoming successful. I teach the whole child and assist him or her to identify their unique learning style for success. I discovered that my learning style is a kinetic visual learner. I need to have a pencil to write down what someone tells me or see a picture to represent what they are saying. I feel strongly that each student must understand their style before diving into any subject for learning. I also believe that the student must find a connection and purpose for learning the subject. Once these two are in place, then the learning begins.
I have had extensive training in 'doing math the new may' according to the best practices in math.
