Teacher
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Education and have taught for many years. I have loved reading since I read my first chapter book at age seven, so I enjoy teaching book studies.I have always had a passion for science. I love rocks and minerals, plants and herbs, and in general most sciences. I believe children, like myself as interested in the mysterious and the strange. Learning is an adventure. My mission is to make learning fun.
Some of my online courses include: book studies for kids from 8 to 15 years; STEM and STEAM classes; preschool classes including, phonics, pre-math, pre-language, and story times. I have a very popular series of classes on rocks, minerals, and crystals for ages 8-13. I also teach geography classes. My years as an elementary and as a preschool teacher have prepared me to teach these subjects effectively to a wide range of ages.
I enjoy teaching classes that highlight my own hobbies and interests such as gluten free cooking, and the mysterious and strange things in life. I can provide a listing of class I have developed upon request.
I am a passionate teacher with more than forty years experience teaching preschoolers to adults. I have taught in home-school preschools, private preschools and public preschools. I have trained teachers as an adjunct instructor at a community college, and have taught grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 in public and private schools. I've spent a large part of my career simultaneously holding workshops, and training and mentoring child care professionals while teaching kids full time. More than 100 child care professionals have earned a CDA credential under my tutelage. Many more have completed their associates degree in Early Childhood Education.
I have been a successful online ESL teacher for more than four years with VIPKid.
I also teach online for Outschool and just passed my second anniversary there. Some of my online courses include: book studies for kids from 8 to 15 years; STEM and STEAM classes; preschool classes including, phonics, pre-math, pre-language, and story times. I have a very popular series of classes on rocks, minerals, and crystals for ages 8-13.
While my professional experience is extensive, the heart of my passion is kids. I love playing with children to help them learn. Every child has his or her own learning style and as a teacher I strive to find how best to help children create their own learning.
I taught my first online class in 2004!
