Class Experience

Students will become efficient goal setters. They will learn to formulate S.M.A.R.T. goals and identify specific obstacles. They will list the skills needed to achieve each of their goals. Students will make a plan of action and learn ways to stay motivated despite Covit-19 and quarantining restrictions.
I have over ten years of experience teaching Life Skills to children and adolescents, these include: Interviewing techniques, anger/stress management, anxiety reduction, anti-bullying self defense, resume writing, public speaking, communication/interpersonal skills, ESL, Spanish and many more. S.M.A.R.T. Goal setting is my favorite life skill to teach because I have had much success teaching it, as well as, used it to achieve my own personal goals. It get a true sense of accomplishment and  pleasure when students and their parents report that learning this one simple life skill has made such a huge impact on all aspects of their lives. 
Although students will not be required to turn in written assignments for this class. After learning how to set S.M.A.R.T. goals, they will be able to write down any goal, short term or long term and achieve it within a reasonable amount of time.

Paper and writing utensils.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students and parents will be able to see goal setting progress based on the results shown after each S.M.A.R.T. goal is set. This type of goal setting is especially useful for reinforcing study skills, reducing test taking anxiety, managing time and stress thus making each learner feel more relaxed and confident in the 2021 academic year. This class will teach your learner to work SMARTER not harder. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

About Me

Learning is a three-fold process of the mind, body and soul.  I take an anti-bias approach to teaching which results in student self-confidence, an increased sense of belonging and a desire to thrive in the community. I spent over ten years...
