About Donna

My degree is in Elementary Education. I'm certified to teach the following: Grades 1-8 regular education; grades 1-8 history and grades pre-k-12 generic special education. I have always wanted to be a teacher and when the opportunity presented itself I felt I had to go for it. I am an avid reader and constantly learning new things. I love to read children's books because it helps me connect with students. I also play video games but they are not always what the kids like to play.

I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2000. I have taught in both public and private schools. I have taught several different curriculums. I love both American and Texas History.

There is nothing more rewarding than hearing a child say, "I finally get it." I try to be creative with my teaching because there is more than one way to get where your going. When I was in the classroom I did a lot of hands-on learning using games and various manipulatives.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

My degree is in Elementary Education. For the past 15 years I have taught all subjects at the elementary level. I am Texas Certified to teach grades 1-8.

Geography

When teaching in a private school where you teach all subjects, geography is considered part of social studies. I taught in a private school for 7 years. When you teach all subjects, history, geography and social studies all roll into one. I also added to the textbooks so the children knew a little more about their world.

Social Studies

History and geography at the elementary level is for the most part considered social studies. I taught social studies for grades 1-5 for six (7) years at a private school. Social Studies can include everything from community at second grade to American History at fourth grade and world history at fifth grade. I am also certified to teach History grades 1-8.
