I am an elementary school teacher with 20 years of experience teaching students the skills they need to be successful.I have my Masters degree in Education the Diverse Learner and I am certified to Teach English as a Forgien Language.
Over the years I have been successful and helped students reach their goals and give them the tools they need to become lifelong learners. Teaching students strategies they can use when I am not there to help them is what I am all about.
When I was a student I struggled too. It is important to me that students see their own potential and feel success with each new skill they acquire. When I am tutoring/helping students I build on the skills they have and fill in the skills they need to get to the next level. I know that every student is able to learn, it is up to me to find a way that helps them.
It is important to me to build a relationship with my students and their families. I want them to feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and ideas with me.
When I am not teaching you will find me walking my dog Gracie Mae. She is only 4lbs and that is as big as she gets. I have a stroller and a backpack for her so we can go on long walks. I also love to watch sports even if I cannot play them.
Graduate Degree: University of Phoenix-Dallas Campus - Master of Arts, Education
In my spare time I enjoy walking and or hiking with my little dog Gracie Mae. We both love to be outside enjoying nature. Sports is another passion of mine. I love to watch football, pro and college, ice hockey and college basketball, men and women's. Baking is also a hobby of mine, I love winter time when I can have the oven on and back to my heart's content without turning my house into an oven! My favorite things to make are cookies and cheesecakes.
