I have been an educator for 28 years, in schools, at home, in co-ops, and at PLANT. I teach many subjects from dance to government to literature. My goal is to help families educate their children. I offer a variety of classes each semester to provide opportunities for students to learn in an environment you cannot quite recreate at home. Students are challenged to think about topics differently than they have before and are encouraged to offer their own point of view.
How the World Works: This High School course dives into the series called Uncle Eric’s Model of How the World Works by Richard J. Maybury. We explore foundational information on politics, economics, law, and history.
USA Geography: This fun and interactive class, for third grade and up explores the political and physical geography of the USA.
Citizenship Basics: Can you pass the U.S. Citizenship test? Our goal is to be able to pass the citizenship test, but we will also use the questions to dive deeper into the content.
Math Quest: Students work in groups using six different strategies to solve problems as they make their way through an imaginary land.
Creative Drama: This class is full of songs, games, and plenty of activities to encourage students to express themselves appropriately and creatively. It is a great way to prepare for more formal public speaking.
This discussion based class is where we enjoy books together. As the teacher, I will guide students through historical context and beginning literary analysis.
