"I am a certified teacher in the state of Nevada. I taught in Washoe County for years, but I am now retired.I am good at most subjects and graduated from college with high distinction. I took a wide variety of classes in college. I am an English major and have minors in Computers, Health and Physical Education. I also studied Spanish.

I have two sons. One is 35 and a Computer Science Engineer. He works in Internet Security. My other son is a Freshman at Cornell University. Both of my sons did very well in school

My main goal as a teacher, and a mom, is to get the students to learn the content/material. I focus on the student and how the student learns. I am flexible in the fact that I will create individual lessons that work for the learner. I think that is why I have had such great success with my students and my own children.

I love teaching writing. That is my forte. I tutored many students and many friends in college, and they all managed to receive A's on their writing projects. I am a high-level reader. I love the Health field and studying subjects like Anatomy and Nutrition, and I also taught these subjects. I taught Computer Applications as well. I have a Media/Computer company and can teach a variety of computer programs and applications including, Excel, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, web design using HTML and other web-authoring programs. I can teach document formatting, and I also taught these subjects in the Washoe County School District.

I know a variety of study skills and can get students organized, which I feel is imperative for student success. I work well with all-levels of students, even though I have mostly taught high school. I am not certified in Special Ed, but I did work in the Special Ed main office when I taught Adaptive PE in Carson City. I learned very much about working with the Special Needs students, and also was usually the teacher of choice by the Special Education teachers at the schools where I taught.

I treat all my students as individuals and feel they all need" less...
