With advice and opinions on education reform, relating to teens, and a little in between.
Welcome to my site! I appreciate you taking a look and hope you enjoy the content.
Since this is my first post, I thought I would share a little about myself. I am a born and raised Floridian that was transplanted in Denver about 3 years ago when I got married. I have worked in education in many facets, including teaching math in urban middle and high schools, teaching in the homeschool sector, teaching small group test prep courses and tutoring students with all backgrounds. (For a more clinical description, see my bio.)
I have a passion for working with teens and mentoring them through the scariest and most critical part of their education. I hope to inspire the students I work with to strive for their goals and to make education what they want it to be. Through my experiences, I have learned much about relating to teens and how they learn. This is why I decided to start a blog (oh, and a tutoring company).
In my writing, I hope to cover topics such as understanding different learning styles, how to motivate students, why mentorship is so important, and what needs to change in education. Also, keep an eye out for some expert test taking advice and updates on standardized testing. I will be posting material that will be helpful to teens, parents of teens, and educators, alike!
Thank you for visiting my site, and please comment or visit my contact page with anything you would like to talk about!
Bye, for now.
