Bio

My name is Lucy and I am currently seeking teaching credentials in Virginia. I taught grades six through twelve at a Catholic school in Petersburg, Virginia (from January to June, 2016) as a long-term substitute teacher. Prior to my long-term substitute teaching position, I taught several elementary and middle school classes for Chesterfield County Public Schools. I am also a writer. In 2015, I wrote for an online publication about addiction and recovery. I have professional experience writing personal essays and news stories, researching rehab facilities, editing submissions and creating newsletters.

I discovered my love for teaching in 2015 when I took a part-time position as an online electives facilitator with high school seniors. After my first session with these students, I committed myself to becoming a teacher. After only one month as the online electives facilitator, the school hired me as a long-term substitute for middle and high school students. Though I did not have experience teaching in the subject area, I developed a rapport with the faculty and students that allowed me to facilitate effective teaching practices to help my students learn.

I am so excited to be able to continue teaching throughout the summer! My professional experience as a writer allows me to work with individuals who need a little extra help communicating their ideas in a cohesive way. I believe anyone can become a strong writer with knowledge of how to use the proper tools. I look forward to applying my skills as a writer and editor to help students discover their strengths.
