"For the last 10+ years I have worked in the West Ada School District in many different capacities. They include standardized testing for K-4th graders in reading, substitute teaching K-middle school, and most recently I was a para professional at North Star Charter School for the last 2 1/2 years working with 5th grade student who either needed additional help or were high achievers in both math and reading. I love working with kids and was very disappointed not to return to North Star this past fall due to Covid-19. I feel that working with students one on one and not in a large classroom setting is a safer option for me and I am looking forward to hopefully working with your child/student.

The satisfaction of finally getting the right answer and that aha moment are so gratifying for both the student and myself. I have worked in small group settings (approximately 4-6 students) helping students with reading comprehension, as well as grammar and spelling. I'm very flexible and I'm willing to taking the direction from parents regarding what would be best for their child.

I look forward to hopefully working with your child and help make the learning process a little easier.
