I was a certified Teacher in NC where I taught all four core subjects, ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies, for 1st-5th grades. I received my degree from Ashford University in Iowa and passed all NC state required certification tests for teaching both general education and exceptional/special education in grades K-6. Prior to my teaching certification I was a certified Exceptional/Special Education Teaching Assistant in NC and NY for ELA, Science, and Social Studies for grades 6-8. 
Homework Offered
No Work outside of class time other than printing and gathering supplies prior to every class. Occasionally we will start an activity in class that needs to be completed after class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will self-assess themselves at the conclusion of each lesson based on the learning goals for each lesson and record their assessment on their assessment sheets. At the end of the year students will be given a final exam to see what material they retained and what they may need to review over the summer before starting the next academic year. One Assessment Sheet will be provided from the Final Exam to the adult that registered each child.
Grades Offered
Parents are REQUIRED to make instructor aware of needs prior to first class. All possible assistance will be made to assist in any students individual needs. Parent/Instructor Communication is expected throughout course.

A "Toolbox" of supplies (listed below in materials) is required EVERY week as well as handouts and experiment supplies. 
*Toolbox supplies for EVERY class are: Pencil, glue, scissors, eraser, tape, ruler, notebook, folder with pockets, markers and colored pencils.

## PRINTER is required for this class as we will be working with handouts essential for notes. 
Parental Guidance is expected. While any materials and experiments are not intended to be harmful in any way, some tools and activities may require supervision while using or completing. However, Parents/Guardians MUST REMAIN OFF SCREEN per Outschool's policy. Make sure that your child is set up so that others can not be caught on camera by accident.
