Activities

I am a certified teacher with 25 years of experience in public and private schools in the Seattle area teaching students with a variety of learning styles. That experience has taught me that students are successful when they gain awareness and understanding of their own thought processes. They participate in lanugage arts, social studies, science and math lessons that are structured based on best practices from brain research, including use of graphic organizers, active engagement, and elaborative rehearsal strategies, to name a few. This is great way to reinforce and strengthen learning skills with middle schoolers. Students are encouraged to use their creative talents to showcase their active learning through a variety of mediums including art, music, and movement. This is not reading the chapter and answering the questions at the end!

Background Check Confirmed

My favorite time of year as a child was summer when I would ride my bike to the Northeast Library to explore the bookshelves and find hidden treasures to read. The experience helped spark my life-long love of reading and learning. I have 25 years of language arts and social studies teaching experience in the Seattle area. Based on that experience, I believe that teachers can make learning fun for all students. My philosophy is that students can be taught skills and strategies that help them master what they are studying. Once they gain these skills and utilize the strategies, they can better understand what kinds of learning work best for them. I firmly believe that this can be done in a way this is fun and taps into the creativity of each student.
