TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello and welcome! My name is Jo, and for the past 30+ years, I have taught everything from early childhood to adults. I have spent most of my years teaching 3rd-5th grade in a Title One public school, but I also spent a few years in a private school setting, homeschool setting, adult higher education setting, and more recently, online international setting. I tend to get a serious "7 Year Itch" if I stay too long in one area, and besides, good teachers never stop growing and learning! Teaching is teaching no matter what the age or backdrop - It is the act of sharing the knowledge we have been given by others with hopes that someday, in some way, it again will be passed on. I feel honored and blessed to do what I do!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on, interactive, purposeful, engaging! Every lesson I ask my students, "Why should you learn this?" and they answer: "Because if I learn this my LIFE HAS JUST GOTTEN BETTER!" It's my goal to give them the tools and experiences to make this true for them every. single. day.
