I have been working with students of all ages for the past 20 years, and I absolutely love it. Before I had my own children, I taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. I am now a homeschool teacher to my four kids, grades 3 - 9. I have also worked as a recreation director and a cheer, baseball, and soccer coach.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I would encourage the student as we go along and find out what is already motivating them. Are they doing this to please their parents, are they working towards a specific goal, or is there something else that is driving them to succeed? Once I learn what that is, I will try to build on it.
