"It's summer! As a third grade teacher in Des Moines, I am truly excited for a change of pace. I love teaching! It has been a busy year, and I am craving one-on-one time with students which just isn't possible in the regular school year.

"It's summer! As a third grade teacher in Des Moines, I am truly excited for a change of pace. I love teaching! It has been a busy year, and I am craving one-on-one time with students which just isn't possible in the regular school year. I am eager to develop new relationships with students with no distractions of day-to-day school life.

I have been teaching for over 20 years and have much knowledge and experience to bring to a learner. I love to be creative with students and engage them so that they see learning is exciting and life-long! I teach in an Artful Learning building which means I value integration of arts and concepts. I am excited to continue learning about the world around me and am inspired to research people, places, and events that are relevant to student interests.

My perfect tutoring situation would be one that follows a course of study inspired by the student's interest and excitement. We would use technology for research, seek out arts-based strategies, and make connections with as many "subjects" and life experiences as we could. We would ask questions, seek answers, and learn together! All of this would be grounded in common core expectations. I love to think BIG and can get very excited...field trip opportunities to make these connections come alive would be amazing!

I have been teaching reading and writing my entire teaching career! I have taught 2nd-5th grades with the most of my classroom experience in third grade. I taught students in Elementary Special Education programs for 8 years in Des Moines. I understand individual needs, and I know how to make strong connections between reading, writing, and areas of student interest. I have a large classroom library from which to pull text that will engage students and am not afraid to seek alternate reading experiences and projects to hook my students.

I teach Common Core subjects daily. I refer to the common core continually when making lesson plans and meeting with my principal and other tea" less...
