TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have nine years of full-time teaching and special programs' coordinating experience. These nine years followed several years of substitute teaching; I am the atypical person who actually LOVES to substitute teach! Due to personal and family health reasons, I currently substitute ("guest") teach in two fairly large school districts in northwest Arkansas. I freelance tutor and "ghost" write on a contract basis as well. My teaching locales were Texas, Kentucky and Arkansas. My myriad experience includes banking, aviation, modeling, secretarial science, writing, and agriculture. I have also worked with foreign exchange students and volunteered with benevolent organizations.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is usually very kinesthetic and visual, although I use tactics to reach all the various learning styles. Creativity and humor in instruction are my credos.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Student-nominated two consecutive years for Who's Who Among America's Teachers, Who's Who Among America's College Students, Pi Sigma Alpha Honorary Political Science Fraternity in College, Dean's List and President's Honor Roll in College, Nominated for Walt Disney World's Creative Teacher Competition. However, my own personal shining moment came when I was informed that parents were upset that I had resigned my previous position, and subsequently voiced their opinions at the local School Board Meeting.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Original B.A. was in Pre-Law (Political Science and Speech); obtained my teaching certification in Waco, Texas, and later obtained a Kentucky teaching certification as well.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My background is extensive in various areas, largely due to my hyperactive nature. I have passed my written private pilot's license exams and have logged numerous flight hours; I have won ribbons in collegiate horse shows; I am conversationally fluent in Spanish. I currently care for my 88 year old mother, who has impending Alzheimer's; my 18 year old daughter (and I) survived her severe childhood ADHD/ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder), which has diminished with age. She graduated high school last year WITH HONORS and will be entering the Air Force in 2015, boasting a 95 on the ASVAB. My small patch of property/ranchette is home to over thirty varieties of poultry, eleven equines, two cats, my hyperpup, and my Mom's human dog.
