I'm a licensed teacher and have been teaching for over 15 years. I currently homeschool two of my children, and I tutor after school. I enjoy watching children learn and grow in knowledge, skills, and confidence. I have experience working with children with a wide range of abilities, from gifted to special needs. My 15-year-old son has Down Syndrome, and he is the light of my life.
I enjoy researching and implementing 21st century learning practices. Because I've taught so many grade levels (Preschool-8), I have a clear vision of the skills and knowledge needed to move forward from one step to the next. As a teacher, I meet each child at the level s/he is at and move on from there. This ensures that a solid foundation of knowledge and skills is built.
