***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! 

***ABOUT BRITTNEY SHAW***
Hi! My name is Brittney. I received my Associates Degree in Elementary Education and my Bachelors Degree in English. I love working with kids and have experience with all ages. 

I am a wife and mother of four, ages 9, 6, 4, and 1, and the oldest of eight. I have been both a nanny and babysitter as well. Through my past employment and own kids, have gained experience with children with speech delays, autism, and ADHD. I have also worked as a classroom volunteer and ESL instructor. 

I love reading and writing and am a total bookworm. I also love dogs and cooking. My kitchen and my reading chair are my happy places! 

My teaching philosophy is that every child is different and my job is to make sure to embrace those differences to make the education experience the best for all the children. 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!"

Qualifications:
-Associates in Elementary Education
-Bachelors in English
-Former ESL instructor
-Experience with all ages

***ABOUT REBECCA WARTHEN***

I have taught English in New York City, Nicaragua, and Thailand as a US Peace Corps teacher.  I've also taught students online from countries like China, Japan, and all over Central and South America. I speak conversational Thai and Spanish.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Students may have optional homework from time to time over the material covered in class. It is there to help them practice and solidify their learning. 
Students will be provided a digital magazine, worksheets, and videos in class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
A Google or Microsoft login is needed to utilize the digital slide decks to its fullest potential. PDF materials posted in the classroom may also be used.

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 Carissa, 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!
