About Krissy

I have taught middle school (grades 6-8) math, science, and writing for 15 years in Indiana, Wisconsin, Nevada, and the Czech Republic (in Europe). My initial teaching license is in elementary education with a minor in learning disabilities. I have a Master's degree in education with a Reading emphasis and an endorsement in Teaching ELLs (English Language Learners.) I have two children, ages 3 and 5. I have been home with my children for three years and am ready to re-enter the teaching world through the avenue of tutoring and working with students and their families.

My family and I just moved to the Appleton area this summer and I'm excited about the opportunity to work with students of all ages. While I love being home with my children, I miss helping students achieve in ways that empower them to become successful life-long learners. I believe in educating the whole child and feel that my wide variety of experiences helps me meet each child where he is at, building on successes that will ultimately give him the confidence to succeed in school and beyond.

I have 15 years of experience teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math (elementary math and pre algebra). I have worked with students of varying abilities in math and feel that I can give students positive experiences and concrete strategies that will enable them to tackle difficult math problems with confidence.

I have a Reading endorsement (grades K-8) as well as a Teaching English Language Learner's endorsement (birth-age 21). I taught 8th grade writing for three years. I also was a GED tutor in writing and reading. I truly enjoy teaching reading to all students and feel that if students have numerous reading strategies at their fingertips, they can feel empowered to read increasingly difficult text.

My undergraduate degree is in elementary education. While my teaching experience is in middle school, I draw on my coursework and teaching strategies that were at the elementary level in order to make learning engaging and fun. I understand child developmental stages and know how to tailor lessons according to varying age levels and abilities.

Please feel free to contact me if you feel that I would be a good match for your child or for you. Thank you very much for your consideration.
