TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I worked 5 years at a private school which consisted mostly of students with Dyslexia. I am now in my 10th year of teaching public school. I became a teacher after raising 5 children, some of which had learning problems.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to help the students learn for themselves. I want my students to embrace how fun learning is. If I can overcome their hesitancy and fear, then 80% of the battle is won. All of us have to be unafraid to fail. Trying and failing is better than doing nothing.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BFA from Sam Houston in Radio/TV/Film Teaching Certificate University of Houston, Clear Lake in Secondary Math Education, Associates from Alvin Community College in Math, and working on Master's in Curriculum Development from University of Texas at Arlington (February, 2014 is anticipated graduation date)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In my 50s with 5 grown children and 9 grandchildren. I am a life-long learner and so is my husband. He became an RN at the age of 40. I became a 'real' teacher the same year I turned 50. Several of my children have learning problems and this led me to an interest in education. So after obtaining a degree in Radio/TV/Film in 1986, I went back to school and began teaching in 1999 at a private school and as an intern. In 2008 I finished my teaching certificate for Secondary Math. I also have published 3 book!
