"I have a passion for reading that began in my youth, and as a school librarian (2015-2018), I worked to make sure that same spark was cultivated in those under my tutelage. I also work currently as a certification exam tutor (2016-Present), helping fellow educators study for various tests such as TExES, Praxis, etc.

"I have a passion for reading that began in my youth, and as a school librarian (2015-2018), I worked to make sure that same spark was cultivated in those under my tutelage. I also work currently as a certification exam tutor (2016-Present), helping fellow educators study for various tests such as TExES, Praxis, etc.

As a teacher (2012-2015), I co-chaired an after-school program that focused on homework help for PK-5th graders. I volunteered at a women's halfway house/shelter in that same time period, offering tutoring services to their children.

All in all, I must admit that I love to learn; but I gain true satisfaction in being able to help others to enjoy learning in the manner that suits them best. It is my passion to be able to encourage the education of children. While students can begin reading before they enter formal schooling, their literacy skills are meant to be refined and improved in the classroom with their instructor's assistance.

As a second grade self-contained teacher, I made reading a skill that was both incentivized and highly sought after by everyone in my classroom. I also facilitated learning by allowing students to learn at their own pace and enjoy themselves while they do so; instead of lecturing constantly, I provided students with the means to create their own learning environments accordingly. In this manner, they became invested in the creation of their personal knowledge and it was therefore more of a valuable impact in the long run. Overall, I want to meld students to have a love of reading and let that same love turn into a yearning for learning-- a veritable yen for knowledge.

I have additionally developed a talent for educating adult learners in professional development trainings by helping them to utilize new technologies or grasp the finer detail of policies. If there is learning to be done, I want to be at the forefront gathering knowledge to help others attain it.

Please do not hesitate to contact me so we can begin learning together!" less...
