>>>ABOUT BECKY ZERR<<<

Teaching--especially in English, writing, and language arts--is a true passion of mine. I graduated Cum Laude from Kansas State University in 2010 with a Secondary Education degree in English and Journalism, and then went on to teach in the public schools before setting off on my own as an online teacher and tutor.

My philosophy of education is to make it as fun, personalized, and as interactive as possible for the kids. I always try to even out my direct instruction/lecture time with plenty of opportunities for students to practice these new skills, take polls, play review games, and collaborate with peers.

I am happily married to my husband Brad, and we have two beautiful daughters, Sophia and Elise. We currently reside in Kansas in a small town, and we love the small town life.

Oh, and Zerr is pronounced "Zarr," so it rhymes with "car." 


>>>ABOUT MONICA WINKLER<<<

Hi there! I'm Monica and I teach reading, vocabulary, and writing classes. I recently finished graduate school in linguistics. 

I grew up speaking English, Spanish, and Swiss German at home, so I've been surrounded by several languages from a young age. Whether I am studying the history of a word, or what language can tell us about its speakers, I am endlessly curious about language. I have experience teaching linguistics courses at the university level, as well as teaching writing, reading, and English as a second language online. I'm so excited to share my passion for language and to learn with and from my students!

My teaching philosophy is that every student comes into the classroom with knowledge. It's my job, as a teacher, to leverage what they already know to help them achieve their goals.
Outside of the classroom, you can find me at the beach, or out in nature. I love to spend my free time reading, writing, and with my friends and family. Oh, and playing with my cat, Biscuit!
I'm looking forward to seeing you in class!

I also want to make sure I do my best to foster a love of reading in my students because, "if you can read, you can do anything!"

Students will have articles to read, as well as videos, choice board projects and worksheet assignments over the material from the lessons. It is there to help them practice and solidify their learning. Some articles will be read before class, while others will be read in class.
Students will be provided a digital magazine article, worksheets, activities, and videos in class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Grades will be provided upon request received at the beginning of the class section to allow Mrs. Zerr to grade assignments as the class progresses. 
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Access to a Google account is advised, as students will have the opportunity to make copies of the lesson slide decks, which does require them to be logged into Google (Gmail, Google Drive, etc.). This login information will in no way be shared with Mrs. Zerr. No direct contact will ever be made via email--all communications will be held on the Outschool website.

At New Horizons Academy, we understand how difficult setting your family's schedule can be, juggling everyone's activities and classes. To honor that time commitment, we are proud to be able to offer another of our organization's Outschool-approved and trained teachers (Mrs. Becky, Teacher Sara, Ms. Monica, or Teacher Donna) in the rare occurrence of teacher illnesses or urgent personal events. This will allow you to keep your schedule in-tact as much as possible and keep the learning going!
