Professional Profile

Works with Students in Grades: All Grades (K through 12)
Educational Philosophies: I believe the family is generally the best place to educate children and realize that no one knows their children's needs better than parents. This is the basis from which I interact with families as we develop educational plans for their children.
Educational Interests: I started my teaching career in a grades 2 to 9 multi-grade classroom and learned to appreciate many subjects. This also taught me the importance of finding ways to combine subjects, making learning interesting for the students and to utilize our limited time together more efficiently. As Tammy and I have homeschooled our daughters, one of which had learning problems, I have come to see that students can be taught in unconventional ways and still succeed.
Instructional Specialties: I have had the opportunity to teach from grades 2 to 12 in many subject areas so am competent in all areas to grade 9. For high school I feel the following subjects are my strengths: Science 10, Socials 10 & 11, Biology 11 & 12, Tech. Ed classes and Photography.
Areas I Do Not Cover: Even though I am willing to monitor most high school classes, if you are looking for direct instruction and specialized teaching then the following classes are best taught by someone else: Precalculus 10 to 12, Chemistry 11 & 12, Physics 11 & 12
