I am a licensed elementary school teacher based in Texas with a wealth of experience in teaching. I hold a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as an Ed.S in Educational Technology. I have worked in various states across America, including Virginia, Louisiana, Texas, Minnesota, and Colorado, where I was a licensed/certified elementary/middle school teacher. I have also worked as a special education teacher as well as an online ESL and private teacher. My specialty lies in working with students who have severe physical, mental, and cognitive issues, including those with Autism and High Functional Asperger's.

Currently, I work online as an English Language teacher, writer, and teacher trainer, where I teach a wide variety of courses that incorporate reading, writing, math, and technology skills in relation to history and cultural awareness. I also run a business called "Michelle's Innovations," offering services such as ESL teaching, training for other teachers, and customized lessons/tutoring for homeschooled students. 

I am passionate about teaching and have a variety of interests that I want to share with my students. I enjoy teaching project-based courses that make learning fun and interactive. I am also a lifelong learner and attend many workshops to improve my skills. I hold several certifications as a Language teacher, including Phonics, English as a Second Language, and Language-based Disabilities.

Aside from teaching, I have a keen interest in history and culture. My two favorite historical figures are Abraham Lincoln and Malcolm X because of their perseverance in the face of failure. I believe that each person has the potential for success, and my passion is to work with students in small groups and individuals who require scaffolding instruction to achieve their goals.

I am married to a retired Navy person and have lived in many different parts of the USA. My family has also lived in Europe, where my Dad worked as a teacher. I believe that we are a global community that needs to live together, and I love to share my experiences with my students.
