AA in Child Development BA in Language Development TESOL Certification Teaching Certification 20+ years in education and curriculum planning Mom of 3 teen/tweens **Further experience notes: During my 20+ years working in Education, I have worked with all age groups. I really do not favor one group over the other as they are each special in their own way. However, I have always found it easy to build rapport and sound relationships with teens. While in Ecuador, I built an English Language Academy and often taught the teen and adult classes due to the level of English required. These classes fulfilled me so much because of the conversations, relationships, and learning experiences the student brought to me! Additionally, I have worked in afterschool and summer programs where I gravitated toward the older groups of teens. I have completed many 1 on 1 tutoring with teens to help with studying and test preparation.
Notebook and pen or digital notes will be extremely helpful during this course for future reference. The teacher will provide a PDF copy of the presentation at the end of each class for those who wish to have it.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
