I have taught English, penmanship and spelling for three years at an elementary level, long-term substituted for several years in middle school and high school levels.
I enjoy an autonomous learning environment where student feel free to ask questions, explore ideas and share with others. Writing and oral communicating skills are high on my priorities to teach my students. I teach them responsibility for their actions, inactions, and for their work.
Yet to be added
I was exposed to public, private and homeschooling as a child and teen. I personally enjoyed homeschooling the most because we took as many outings and trips as we possibly could (my parents did a lot of traveling) for educational purposes. My parents also made sure to teach me and my sister home economics type skills from sewing, crochet, knitting, basic building skills and technical skills of repair, cooking, canning, gardening and crafts of all kinds.
I am a huge nerd and love all science fiction and geeky related topics. I am also a Christian who believes that everyone deserves love, and Christ does not leave anyone out of His reach. Love is always the answer.
