I have credentials in Elementary and Secondary Ed. as well as an MA in Teaching and Learning, and I delight in applying my skills to help my students ?upgrade? theirs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Ryan Lifetime elementary credential, I began teaching 4-6 grade in 1968 and retired from those grades as a sub in 2013. I know the curriculum extensively - I helped develop both math and history curriculum,programs, and materials for my district over the years. My 2006 Master's degree is in Teaching and Learning. As a sub, I taught K-12. As a regular teacher, I taught 6-8 (38 years). As a summer school teacher, I taught 4-6 and at-risk 6-8 students over a period of 20 years... very successfully.


Study Skills

I specifically taught study skills for the 38 years I was in the classroom, the 7 years I subbed, and now as a professor. I would say these skills are basic to improvements in any area of expertise: studying the subject in detail and relating that subject to others begins with attention to, i.e. "studying" it. That is the lesson learned when one develops the "skills". And skills must be practiced. It is my job to show students how to do that.


Anthropology

As a practicing anthropologist, I worked in the field obtaining and processing artifacts. As a cultural anthropologist, I have lived in, studied, and compared customs/cultures, and belief systems in Asia and Latin America as well as regional ones in the U.S.A. I am familiar with terms and practices used in ethnic studies and cross-cultural comparisons and can explain them to students.


Social Studies

I taught Social Studies at the elementary, middle school, and high school level. The texts I used included early history (U.S., world) to present, as well as political and cultural influences and social belief systems. Social Studies covers a lot of territory. I find all of it stimulating and try to interest my students in the relevancy of what they are learning to present events.
