Degrees and Certifications:
I am an Independent Study Teacher for the K-8th grade students.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
My desk phone number is 749-4024. Parents are encouraged to communicate with me regularly.
Each student meets with me once a week for an hour and there is always much to accomplish during each appointment: assigning and evaluating work assignments, assessing learning, and providing as much teaching as time allows! I try to make my teaching time fun, engaging, and worthwhile. I feel that family support is crucial for effective student learning on Independent Study.
Listen with Intent to Understand --- Focused attention with intention = more knowing
Read with Intent to Understand --- Focused attention with intention = better comprehension
Other goals for my students include: understanding concepts, developing skills while gaining knowledge, maintaining high expectations for success and achievement, and attending to personal growth, as well as becoming more critical thinkers.
I received my B.S. degree at the University of California, Davis and my Teaching Credential through Chico State University. I’ve been a teacher with the Yuba Co. Office of Education since 2001.
