Hello to All! I am a fun, outgoing, loving life, mother of two boys ages 14 and 16, a wife of 23 years, and a certified Elementary Teacher. I substitute teach and had home schooled my older son through the 8th and 9th grade in his main academic subjects.I also tutor various students in both academics as well as the trumpet. I love to read especially series that are full of adventure, myths and magic. My favorite series I have read are from Authors Rich Riordan, Angie Sage, Stephanie Meyers,... [more]
I am certified to teach elementary students. Every subject requires reading and comprehension. I understand how fluency affects reading comprehension and retelling as well as writing. Finding where a students reading level is and their fluency in reading aids in devising a plan to help them improve in reading. Reading and comprehension are so important because it affects how students do in all subject areas.
Through my teaching certification and the classes I took to achieve my certification I have the ability to teach elementary math as well as tutor those who struggle with math.
I am a certified elementary teacher. I have my state certification and B.S. degree in elementary education. Along with my student teaching I have been a substitute teacher for the ELCO School District since 2009.
I have been playing the trumpet for 32 years. I currently have students that I teach privately. In high school, I played in the Marching Band, concert Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, Pit Band for musicals and Pit Band for Choir.
