I have a passion for education. My mantra is "You will never achieve success unless you love what you are doing." Although Education is my second career, I know that my passion is to mentor children and teachers. It is so exciting when students realize their academic potential. I stress to students who struggle academically that "failure is never an option."
I have over 25 years of experience as a science and exceptional student education teacher, behavior therapist, administrative dean, and assistant principal. I find that my mission as a teacher is threefold: 1) to promote positive learning; 2) to spark learner enthusiasm for learning; and 3) to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning. To accomplish this, I enjoy applying a wide variety of strategies based on essential educational principles encompassing cognitive functioning, learning theory, diversity issues, instructional planning, and assessment. The implementation of these strategies will make me a great tutor.
