About Kathy

I specialize in hands-on activities especially in math. I have special tools and lots of games and activities to help students understand the math processes and to make math FUN! I have extensive training and experience to show children how to use manipulatives and draw pictures so they can SEE math. I love the challenge of working with the youngest students on beginning counting/math skills. My experience as a classroom teacher have given me many opportunities to help children become confident, competent, and accurate as well love math.

I have been teaching students to read for over 30 years. My masters degree specialization is in elementary reading. I have received special training in guided individualized reading as well as working with students who struggle with reading. I have had extra training in a phonetic approach to reading for beginning readers. This training included some Montessori methods and materials which are very effective and developmentally appropriate for beginning readers. Sharing books and reading with students are some of my favorite things to do.

Throughout my 30+ years experience in elementary classrooms I have acquired many strategies and tools to address the individual specific needs of my students. I have recently retired from teaching in the classroom. I am now eager to work one-on-one with individual students. I love to challenge students to explain their thinking and in the process become much more confident as learners. Please contact me so we can work together and enjoy learning.

Approved subjects
