Class Experience

My goal is to open up the creativity of students and help them to write a short story.  To unlock their imaginations and memories of past experiences that will be put into story-form.  *Writing stories with details will help students to comprehend what they read in other classes and do better on school homework and tests in other subjects such as history, science, English, and math word problems.
I have a Master's Degree, am semi-retired, and I work with students from kindergarten through high school as a substitute teacher, afterschool tutoring, writing plays and skits with students, and teaching on-stage acting classes.
The plays have presented to the public in theaters and schools.
My philosophy; “No one can take away your education.”  
I encourage students to have fun learning and to take ownership in their education.
I have a great rapport with students.  I enjoy telling stories, flying kites, cooking on a campfire, building parade floats, tutoring, and attending sporting events.  I hear from kids and parents, “Where do you get your energy?”  Teacher James
Homework-optional-- if the student wants to write a story about a dog.  What kind of dog?  The student may want to research simple facts about that breed of dog and share them in class verbally or via chat box.  I do a little research for my stories.  One student had info on dad's car; where it was made and the engine size, etc. 
Paper and pencil to jot down your ideas and to draw pictures about the story.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
If requested, I will give a letter grade on the student's A) participation and B) final story.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
