Bio

I have known since I was five years old that my purpose in life is kids. That's why I became a teacher! I am in my 21st year as an educator. I currently teach math intervention and ESL at the junior high level. As a tutor, I've worked with everyone from kindergarteners to high school seniors.

I have known since I was five years old that my purpose in life is kids. That's why I became a teacher! I am in my 21st year as an educator. I currently teach math intervention and ESL at the junior high level. As a tutor, I've worked with everyone from kindergarteners to high school seniors. My favorite thing about tutoring--besides getting to hang out with kids--is watching a student grow and become more confident through their work. I live for the light bulb moment of understanding. Nothing is more satisfying to a teacher that seeing their students succeed!

I am certified in elementary mathematics, grades 1-8. The majority of my classroom experience has been with 6th, 7th, and 8th grade learners, although I have tutored through algebra two. I have a special affinity for kids who struggle. My current, and most favorite, teaching position is as a math interventionist. There is something supremely fulfilling in working with struggling students to help them gain the knowledge they're lacking and the confidence they need to be successful in school.

I am also certified as an elementary reading teacher, grades 1-8, and an all-level ESL teacher. Reading is the basis for everything we do! There is so much more to understanding content than just calling the words on the page. As an ESL teacher, I've worked to help kids connect the print to the meaning. Those same skills work with native speakers as well. I love reading! It opens worlds to us without ever leaving the room! There is just talking, and then there is the power language found in books. Everyone should have access to their own share of the power. Good teachers help kids find that power.

I am a teacher. I care about kids and learning. It's not what I do--it's who I am. I work hard to help kids grow into the successful adults they were meant to be. I look forward to helping you and your children on the journey to success!
