My BA came from John Carroll University and is in English and teaching. My Masters in the Art of Teaching came from Madonna University and is in Learning Disabilities. I have taught high school and middle school English and special education. Therefore, I am experienced in working with students of all abilities.
My favorite subject to teach is English Language Arts, though I work with students oral subjects. Helping students to succeed in academics and life goals is my main motivation as a teacher. I greatly value summer enrichment. I like to ensure students learn the material by working hard, yet look at each student as an individual who may need different ways of learning and different levels of support. Some students are shy, some are outgoing; some are academically driven, and some are interested in other things. I take these aspects into account when teaching.
I am presently teaching 6th grade special education at an online school. I have previously worked at "bricks-and-mortar" schools for 3 years full time and 5+ years as a substitute.
Personally, I love books. Reading and talking about them is a great pleasure of mine. I also like word games and puzzles. I knit and crochet, and enjoy walking around parks with my family!
