My son and I joined Outschool in September of 2019. We also started homeschooling at the same time. I enjoy being a parent and a teacher with Outschool. I receive valuable insight due to my two roles. 

-I love learning. I love learning about writing, science, literature, arts, history, and many more topics. 
-I have done a lot of research, took classes, and in many cases received certification for the following:
social skills, happiness, mindfulness, crisis intervention, mental illness, disabilities, self-esteem for elementary and middle schoolers
-I have lead many clubs and classes in these areas too. I also have extensive knowledge of the impact of stress, mental illness, chronic illness, and environmental circumstances on a person's learning.
-Soccer Player and Coach: eons 
-I love working with children.
