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 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!"

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 in the rare occurrence of teacher illnesses or urgent personal events. This will allow you to keep your schedule intact as much as possible and keep the learning going! We will, of course, notify you in the classroom as soon as we know that a teacher change is needed. --- External Resource: Lumio by SMART Lumio by SMART is an interactive lesson resource similar to Nearpod that engages learners through polls, games, sharing, as well as workspaces for individuals, groups, and the whole class!
