I am a retired certified middle and high school teacher, creator and teacher of The Self-Confidence Project on Outschool, Professor, attorney and mother of seven. Every class I create is first implemented in my own household.  My teaching philosophy is that all students are individuals and unique learners that must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and where mistakes are considered education victories.
     While incorporating the eight learning styles into each class, I believe that there are five essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access to hands-on activities. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. (4) Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment. (5) Technology must be incorporated into the school day.
    My classes are inclusive to neurodivergent and neurodiverse learners and I do my best to make alternative lesson plans when needed.  Parents should never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Homework Offered
Students will work on projects throughout the week as possible. I recognize some students will need/have more time than others.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Communication with parent available at any time. Regular reports available for those that need. Please contact teacher directly for needs.
Grades Offered
Supplies are included in the class description and will be listed in the classroom before each week.
First week supplies:
Students need a notebook or journal for class.  
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The only content that may pop up in this class is from the student.  If there is something brought up in class that I feel needs to be kept private I will take down a video and not share it.  For example,  I have had students discuss personal information about divorce and another student come out in a classroom in chat.  I do not encourage these discussions, but on occasion a student will just feel the need to say something.  If that occurs, I feel it is my obligation to keep that information as private as possible for both the family and the student.  I will notify parents if I decide not to post a video. 
Also, students will be working outside of class and may need to be monitored by parents when working on projects.  As always I encourage communication between student and parent and remind students to ask for permission before going to websites on the internet.  Students must also get parent's permission before giving personal information to other students.  I will need verification from the parent that this is okay.
