Having worked with children and teens for 16 years as director of a good-sized after school program, I have developed my ability to be student-centered, creative and flexible. Working with teens as counselors for children, I teach staff training both during the school year and in summer camps. Through my outdoor education teaching, I offer experiential education in the natural world, including kayaking skills and cross-country skiing. I find that most people learn academics better by having a balance with outdoor time and awareness of the natural world around them, including experiential fun learning skills that encourage and boost their self-esteem, self-awareness and self-empowerment.
With this life-balance, I find that students can also boost their absorption and thinking skills by centering themselves either outdoors or through a bit of meditation practice.

When teaching academics as well as environmental skills, students respond well to a child-centered approach, and giving them the chance to express themselves.

I enjoy the ah-ha's of learning, and love to help others get to a positive learning experience.

As an environmental and science educator with two masters degrees, and 26 years of experience in schools as a volunteer, assistant teacher, program developer, math/science and language arts/social studies 5/6th grade teacher, I have had a lot of experience in schools.

As an environmental and science educator for the last 18 years, as well as a camp director, I have been teaching small and larger groups of children and youth. My focus is child-centered, so that my teaching methods address the students' needs. I can help students develop focus and improve their study skills through engaging them in the topic areas and addressing their needs and learning styles. As a high school student, I took the speed reading course, and found that it is most useful for focus and to improve understanding of reading. I can teach skills for focus and to improve learning.

Sewing

I have been sewing for 60 years, since I was 5 years old and have always enjoyed teaching sewing to children at after school programs, as well as my own children. My son was making quilted pin cushions with 6 hexagons when he was 5 years old, and about 100 children have learned to sew with me, both hand-sewing and on the machine. I work closely with the students so they are successful in their endeavors.
