My name is Jade and I am a certified 1-6th grade educator with five years of full time classroom experience in 1st-8th grade settings. I have worked extensively with children of all ages and have tutored children privately in everything from reading and math to High School ACT prep. I am currently in the process of moving to Texas from Oklahoma where I have served as a children's director of programs at a church with about 80 kids for the last two years. This included a lot of teaching, curriculum design and training of teachers for different programs, as well as working with parents and families. I love helping children discover the gifts and interests that they have and become independent learners with natural curiosity and I believe that every child has something great to offer to our world! I believe that learning should be fun and am very familiar using experience based and hands on lessons.
