Although I am new to teaching, I have had a love of learning as long as I can remember. Now that my daughter is on that educational precipice of core curriculum, I love seeing her grasp concepts on her own after lessons we have done.
My teaching style is to let the child lead the teacher. This not to say that I allow the child to choose what they want to learn, but to recognize when the child is at a place in their curriculum where it is a good idea to stop and start reinforcing the skills they are have a harder time with. I do not believe that children should be kept to a standard that includes all children in their grade or area. I believe we as educators, whether at home or in the schools, should be creative and patient to those that need more time to learn skills and to also challenge those that master them quickly. Each child is different and we need to teach each differently.
I recently finished my bachelors degree in Nutritional Sciences with top honors, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA. It felt awesome to set a goal like that and see it become a reality as well as be able to have my friends and family watch me receive my degree with over 2,000 of my fellow students!
I have a bachelors degree in Nutrition Science and am also a certified personal fitness trainer. Currently, I am working on a program for schools to educate children in grades K-12 about nutrition, the importance of good nutrition and good food choices as well as incorporating regular exercise into their day in fun ways.
I am the mother of two amazing children ages 5 and 13 and wife to an extremely support husband.
