Shelia I have been in the education field for over 15 years. I love assisting others of all ages in exploring and expanding their learning capacity, which in turn, enriches the quality of their lives. My biggest joy as a teacher is seeing someone come to a full understanding of a concept they could not grasp before. Helping the learner reach those "a-ha" moments is what a teacher does!

Rebecca ...M.A. from the University of Alabama in Elementary Education. During the past year, I left my role as a classroom teacher to train and mentor new teachers.

Alonso ...While at my university I also worked with adult students pursuing a GED. Ultimately, mathematics is not about memorizing formulas but about the logical process of arriving at a conclusion. Ideally, my job will consist of reminding the student of the tools at their disposal and they will make the leap themselves towards their desired answer. This ability to think about problems is not limited to mathematics and, if mastered, will stay with the student...

However, I do miss Austin and look forward to any opportunity to go back and visit. When I'm not exploring cities I enjoy reading, going to see movies, trying to find new music, and keeping up with my friends. Oh and if it's Sunday I'm probably anxiously watching the Texans

Sonya ...each individual. For example one child may benefit from visual learning while another student may learn best from a more hands on approach such as practice problems. I love helping students understand a concept that they previously struggled with. It gives you a good feeling to know that you have helped and could possibly have an impact on this child's or teenager's education experience. I absolutely love animals. I read in my spare time. I...
