I am a school nurse (RN) and a mom of 3 very different learners. They have been exposed to homeschooling, public schooling, and private schooling. Therefore, I've witnessed many different teaching styles and educational settings. I am personally enrolled in higher education classes to expand my nursing degree and possibly get a teaching certification to teach Health Science in the local schools.
My oldest child is biological and is an average learner, but struggles with social anxiety. She is also struggling with joint pain and likely has inherited Rheumatoid Arthritis from her dad and grandmother. Next, I have a daughter who was internationally adopted with a low functioning cognitive level, but she is very visual, dramatic, and extremely social. My youngest is a rough and tumble boy also internationally adopted. He is extremely bright, but struggles with ESL, sensory integration, and motivation. My teaching style has been to try to tailor to what each child needs at that specific moment. I have labored tirelessly for years and I would like to share my findings and creations with the things that have worked throughout the years. Also, I would love to share some school nursing forms and materials as well.

I am a registered nurse who is currently enrolled in classes as a lifetime learner. I hope to one day have my teaching certification to teach health science and math in the local schools. In addition to helping my children learn (homeschool, public, and private schools), I have worked in the public school setting as a school nurse. I served as Clinical Nurse Educator for several years in the hospital settting. There, I trained new employees and assessed competencies. I have presented formal classes on multiple subjects including chemotherapy administration, CPR, etc. I had a unique experience on a city based comittee along with the Chief of Police, Chief of Fire Department, City Mayor, and several others to evaluate the bioterrorism plans for the city. I have presented on a number of topics in formal settings in relation to adoption as well.
