About Lorena


Bio

I have been teaching for over twenty years working with elementary to high school students in both private (homeschool) and public schools. One of my passions in teaching is reaching students by helping them learn at their own pace while challenging them to excel. Throughout the years, I have taught many subjects.

In public school (TX certified), I taught:
• U.S. History
• World History
• AP-U.S. History
• Pre-AP World History

I have been teaching for over twenty years working with elementary to high school students in both private (homeschool) and public schools. One of my passions in teaching is reaching students by helping them learn at their own pace while challenging them to excel. Throughout the years, I have taught many subjects.

In public school (TX certified), I taught:
• U.S. History
• World History
• AP-U.S. History
• Pre-AP World History
• End-of-the-Year Exam preparation course (many students achieving a score at level III)

For 5 years I was a public school homebound teacher and tutored students of all grades in all subjects in their home environment. These were students, who were unable to attend school due to illness or accident.

In the private homeschool environment, all subjects were covered throughout elementary, middle school and high school having taught my son from 4th grade to graduation. Also, I served for 8 years in leadership on a regional private school council and was named Texas Home School Coalition Association's Leader of the Year in 2001.

During my public school career and U.S. History teacher, one of the charges with the Social Studies department was to write curriculum that was aligned to the Texas TEKS for U.S. History. Using state assessment data and the TEKS, I created curriculum and designed activities to engage students to prepare with the goal of earning a passing score in the STAAR exam.

I homeschooled and taught my son from 4th grade through 12th grade and watched him graduate with honors. I was named homeschool leader in 2001 and served as president of the local homeschool organization for serval years. In those years, I consulted homeschool families in choosing curriculum and led co-op courses for homeschool students.

I have a BA in History and hold a lifetime History teaching certification, Social Studies Department Head 2012-2015, Hatton W. Sumners Institute on the Founding Documents, AP Summer Institute- UTPA, TELPAS and SIOP

I look forward in meeting and helping you with achieving your academic goals. Let's assess where you are, your learning style and make it happen.
