I have taught students of all ages from diverse backgrounds and with various academic needs. I have found that all individuals have the potential to succeed academically with individualized instruction, and the dedication of teachers who motivate them to excel. Assisting students with overcoming anxiety and shame about perceived inadequacies related to learning potential is an important first step in the teaching process.
I have a major in English and minor in Secondary Education from University of Richmond. I was awarded a Virginia teaching license at the end of my senior year at the University of Richmond. I earned my Master of Arts degree from the University of Delaware, specializing in Secondary English.
I have successfully taught all levels of middle school and high school English, adult basic education, pre-GED, GED, and SAT. In addition, I have taught undergraduate English courses at the University of Delaware.
I am a community activist. I have held two bone marrow screening drives. I am also a neighborhood watch coordinator. My hobbies are writing, hiking, and reading.
