TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a former elementary teacher with a background in psychology, social work, the non-profit sector, and special needs. I work from home creating resources from Penelope's Portfolio - Social Skills, and am also a hands on mother to my three beautiful children, who keep me learning every day!

MY TEACHING STYLE

The best compliment I received from one of my former students was, "You are strict and you are nice." That speaks to my teaching style of setting boundaries, yet being personable while focusing on virtues at the same time. My materials focus on character education and social skills, and are appropriate for teachers, school counselors, SPED, SLPs, parents, and other specialists.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Shining moments can be heartfelt and unforgettable. When I taught a student who experienced the loss of his mother while he was in second grade, I could relate to this student because I lost my father when I was a child in first grade. I told this student that I lost my father when I was young, just like he had lost his mother. We connected in a true and meaningful way. I was able to break through to this child in a unique manner that others could not. This student had many challenges, but our connection made things significantly easier for both of us. It was not necessary for me to teach differently to this child, but it was necessary for me to support and be there for this child. Once my student understood I was on his side, he was open to learning. That experience taught me that making real, not forced, and personal connections should never be underestimated, as they can lead to successes and shining moments. That type of reward is much greater than a paper award.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.A. in Education, B.A. in Psychology, and CA Teaching Credential.
