"I have always enjoyed working with students and seeing them learn. There is something so rewarding when you are working with a student and they learn something new or have accomplished a task that was difficult for them. That joy they have seems contagious and makes me want to work harder!

As of mid-December I will have completed my course work for my masters in Elementary Education/Early Childhood and am excited for the next chapter to begin.

Over the last few years I have worked in schools both in Michigan and New England. I have found that the best approach to helping a student be successful in a classroom or subject is to connect with them, build their trust and tackle the problem from their perspective. I will never just tell the student the answer to hurry the process along. Instead I allow for 'think-time'. I have also found that discussing the lessons with the students, making them part of their learning, is important to their success.

Finally, I don't believe any child cannot do something. I believe they just need the right approach and help to master anything they wish to do." less...
