I am a retired 5th-grade teacher of 13 years from a Christian School. I LOVED my job. I'm retired because of relocation, but would still love to have interaction with kids. Kids are awesome! I believe that every child has great potential inside of them - it just takes some of them a little longer to grasp concepts and realize that potential. My main objective is to, naturally, help kids understand educational concepts, but to also give them confidence that they can do anything they set their minds to. Given confidence, most kids are smarter than they believe they are and they really can do this!!!! That's my job - give them confidence through repetition and one on one personal tutoring!!!!
