 - Proper use of grammar and spelling.

I love working with kids! I have 14 years of teaching experience, and I have taught in both traditional school settings and as a homeschool parent. I am passionate about helping kids at all levels of their reading and writing journey. It's so exciting when I see a student gain confidence as a reader/writer or when I can help a young aspiring writer achieve their dreams.

My writing experience includes writing copy for marketing materials, ghost writing for corporate executives, technical writing, writing newspaper articles, and writing instructions for digital technology applications. Managing a corporate internal newsletter was one of my favorite projects. I created the newsletter design, interviewed and wrote articles about team members, and managed the editing and submission process for all the contributors. As a hobby, I love to write short stories, poetry, and songs. I can't imagine my life without writing.

My education includes a BA in Communications and a Master of Science in Technical and Professional Communication (MSTPC). Because I have completed 2 years of my BA and all of my MS classes online, I am skilled with the various aspects of online learning. I love using what I have learned to help kids become better at reading and writing.
Day 1: Answer questions as you examine a work of art.
Day 2: Write a rough draft of the personal response essay.
Day 3: Edit and write the final copy of the essay.

A 2-page worksheet is provided in the classroom. Students can print this out. They will also be writing or typing their essay, so they will need either paper and pen or a device to type on.
I will read the essays and provide written feedback on what the student did well and any areas where they can improve.
2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will use the following paintings will be used during and outside of class. Students do not need to find these. I will provide slides with them.
"Proud" by Kevin Williams
"Sunrise" by Claude Monet
"Persistence of Memory" by Salvador Dali
"Portrait de L'artiste Sans Barbe" by Vincent Van Gogh
"The Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh
