TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an online ESL teacher with a major English company in China. I have taught in a traditional classroom setting for many years after leaving a very lucrative business career. I went back to school to follow my dream and passion for education. I also am able to teach my girls at home. So I am homeschooling and teaching which is the best of both worlds. I love teaching and love project based learning. I am able to create lessons that are hands on even for students online.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My project base learning skill set allows me to engage students of all ages in a fun-filled atmosphere. I can ensure that all lessons have a clear focus. My classroom is full of music, props, and sign language enables my students to be sure they understand concepts. My education philosophy is that if a child enjoys a lesson, then they want to continue to learn. If an educator instills a love of learning, then they are building an interest in exploring educational pursuits on their own. Students in my class are assigned extra assignments and vocabulary in their lesson history to build on their reading skills. As an American educator, I have access to many age appropriate articles that are grade appropriate. I have many American Lexile readers that cover relevant topics like news and history that I can share to expand a student's knowledge. By sending extra work, the students can develop their knowledge of subject matter, from the Italian Renaissance to Harry Potter; I know through conversations during class student's interest. I also believe that students based on their ages need to move. Students learn concepts better when movement is involved. Early education experts have proven that learning words and sign language at the same time helps the brain to comprehend the meaning of the word.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Catherine started her career as a business major. After selling her very successful business, she decided in 2009 to pursue her passion by earning another degree in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in English. Catherine has a dual certification in elementary and middle school ages. Catherine is also a certified teacher in gifted and talented programs. She specialized in project-based learning and technology in the classroom. Her training in project-based learning is with leading American educators like Ron Clark and Geoffrey Canada. Catherine has done extensive tutoring in PSAT and SAT writing. This training has enabled her to work students of diverse cultures and backgrounds. Catherine left full-time teaching so that she could homeschool her two daughters through middle school. Catherine loves to help students find their intrinsic motivation. She believes that successful students must be able to articulate their thoughts and expressions through vivid and clear writing. Catherine enjoys reading, hiking, traveling, and playing games. Catherine lives in Greenville, South Carolina with her family.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love to hike and have hiked many mountains. I hiked the Grand Tetons. I love being a mother to my three children, Griffin, Gracie, and Caroline. I have owned and sold a business. I have gifted and talented certification meaning I know how to push students who are operating above grade-level. Students should book my class because of my passion and creativity. My classes are interactive and full of positivity. I believe that by giving positive reinforcement we build confidence and my classroom environment is a platform for that belief. My fascinating experience is the following riddle: I know how to travel 11 countries in under 6 hours; I have had dinner with a mouse and been an official princess. Can you guess where I accomplished all those things in one day?
