Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I taught in public schools for 7 years, gaining experience with teaching, maintaining strong relationships with parents, establishing excellent organizational and people skills, serving on various committees, and gaining valuable insight from gifted teachers around me. In 2001, I began home schooling our 3 children, including selecting curriculum, maintaining lesson plans, maintaining required testing, and keeping full records of progress. Currently, I am self-employed as a tutor, using my teaching abilities to help a wide range of students.
