I've been a paraeducator for 4 years and will graduate with a BS in Education in December 2018.
I mostly consider myself a social re-constructionist. Even as a para, I practice constructivism in the classroom almost every day.

My educational background includes a BS in Computer Science with a minor in Philosophy from Wichita State University and a MS in Management from Friend’s University. I expect to graduate from Newman University with a BS in Elementary Education December 2018.
I have a Green Belt in Lean Six Sigma and an extensive background in Project Management and Customer Service. I’ve always had a strong desire to share knowledge with others. The economy forced me to drift from a career in the computer industry, so I utilized my organizational skills for non-profits, and then merged into the education field. I have a very creative background and I’ve used that skill to encourage the students with which I work each day. Students have to be engaged in order for the learning process to dive deep within their minds and hearts. Whether it’s a color, cut, match, and glue activity for kindergartners, helping 1st graders write a funny short story with weekly spelling words so they better understand the meaning of the words, or assisting 4th graders to use laptops for a technology treasure hunt to learn more about prefixes and suffixes, I can engage each level and make it a fun lesson.
