Always loved education and how it can change a child's life. I owe a debt to teachers. After working at Region 10 for almost a decade, retired to obtain my teaching degree to pass on what I have learned from amazing teachers in my professional and personal life. Quickly realized the importance of balanced literacy to students and went straight on to obtain my Master's Degree in Reading. Currently personally tutoring students in ELAR, math, reading, science, social studies and writing.
My husband passed away in 2008. His dream was for me to complete my teaching degree because we both realized how a good education can change the direction of a child's life. It did not happen while he was here on earth, but I know he is in heaven and expecting me to make a contribution to children and their education. I am just trying to do what my husband, Vonny would want me to do. My goal is to help at least 100 children who struggle in school before I join him in heaven.
