Class Experience

The students will how historical events participated in how the territories and regions became states.  In addition, they will learn the geographical dimensions of the states. 
I am a licensed school teacher in the state of Texas Kinder, Pre-K through Eight Grade, Certification for basic high school math, English Language Skills, Social Studies, and History.  I have a master's in Curriculum and Ed.S in Educational Technology. I have lived and worked as a teacher in Virginia, Louisiana, Texas, Minnesota, and Colorado.  In each state, I was a licensed/certified elementary/middle school teacher. In addition to working with the elementary,  middle school teacher, and ninth & tenth grade, I have worked for several years as a special education teacher and online ESL and private teacher. In public schools, I specialized as a teacher by working with students who had severe physical, mental, and cognitive issues. Also, I worked with students who had severe Autism and who were also diagnosed with High Functional Asperger’s.  Currently, I work online as an English Language teacher, writer, and teacher trainer. As a middle school teacher, I taught English Language skills (writing, grammar, and reading) and Social Studies. In addition, I taught Basic Math skills, English Language, Social Studies and My two favorite historical figures are Abraham Lincoln and Malcolm X because each person never allowed failure to stop them from their eventual success as person.  My passion is to work with students in small groups and individuals who require scaffolding instruction to be successful. In addition, I love to teach a variety of courses and have a variety of interests that I want to share with my students.  I love to teach project-based courses that incorporate reading, writing, math, and technology skills in relation to history and cultural awareness.  
I love learning! I am in graduate school and attend many workshops.  I have completed my Educational Specialist degree in Educational technology, my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction, Bachelor of Arts in Specials Education and Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  I also have an Associate degree in Early Childhood and a TESOL in English as a Second Language.  I attend many workshops and have received my certifications as a Language teacher (Phonics, English as a Second Language, Language-based Disabilities).
In addition to working for Outschool, I have a business “Michelle’s Innovations” and provide services as an
•	an ESL teacher and am contracted with several Asian companies as either a small group or one on one teacher 
•	 training for other teachers via webinars and in-person workshops.  
•	adjunct professor for an online community college, Aimslee Institute
•	The Dragon’s Liar, a Teacher Pay Teacher’s online education store
•	Customized lessons/tutoring for students who are homeschooled,   
•	Professional Learning for education professionals and proofreader for writers
As a public-school teacher, I received training in multi subjects, including science, writing, reading, math, and geography.  As a result, I also taught children from PreK- to 8th grade in the above subjects.  My certifications have included these areas, as well as a resource, teaching, and ESL.  My favorite subjects have always been science, reading, writing, and geography, so I have been fortunate in that I have been able to teach these subjects to students who are extremely interested in these areas. AS an elementary teacher I taught multiple subjects including science.  I taught life cycles many times during my time as a Preschool,  3rd to the 6th-grade teacher.  In addition, was a Social Studies and History teacher for grades 6-8 and 9-10 grade.

My husband is a retired Navy person and we have lived in many different parts of the United States of America. In addition, my own family has lived in Europe where my Dad worked as a teacher.  I love to share and believe that we are a global community that needs to live together.
