My passion for teaching started nearly 20 years ago. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education and a Master of Education degree, with a concentration in literacy and curriculum. I have several years of classroom teaching experience as well as working one-on-one with children with special needs. I have a dual certification from the state of NH in Elementary Education and Special Education.
I use successful educational techniques to instruct children. I believed that, although many teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many children do not respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. I believe that a child's strengths and natural ability needs to be the foundation of learning. I see a child as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Finally, my teaching focuses on building confidence, motivation, focus, and problem solving skills.
