After graduating from with my BA in Speech Communication and a minor in Education and English, I began teaching full time in 1995. With 20 years of experience under my belt, I think my strengths lies in valuing the individual learning style of each student and working diligently to communicate for understanding and encouragement. I think that learning is best in its process, rather than the product. If I can teach the student to be confident when he/she is in the process, the product will take care of itself.
