When I toured my undergraduate college campus for the very first time, there was a little office on a hill. That tiny building turned out to be a community service office where I was determined to spend my college time working and helping others. About half way through my first year, my wish came true and my love of tutoring began. During my time at Bloomsburg University, in addition to working in that little office where I tutored students in many of the surrounding school districts, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, with a concentration in Exceptional Individuals. My experience in tutoring paid off when I earned a position as the Assistant Coordinator for the tutoring program. Under this title, I aligned college tutors with school districts and students for after school tutoring. To further my experience, I spent several summers working as a Camp Director for our local YMCA, where I also offered tutoring to any student enrolled in the camp. For the past 15 years, I have been a 5th grade teacher. Most recently, I have taught English Language Arts and Science. During my time as an educator, I have completed my Master of Science degree in Educational Development and Strategies and am ALMOST (2 classes away!) finished with my second Master of Science degree in Online Education.
I have four beautiful children, ages 14, 10, 4, and 2 and love spending time with them. We spend as much time as possible camping, hiking, swimming, and anything else related to the outdoors! I also love reading and gardening and, like Confucius, have a very strong belief that "It doesn't matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.."
