With this course, you will learn how to pay very close attention to your child or your students. When you do, the teachable moments just happen. But first you need to learn the theoretical backdrop, the skills, the strategies, and the methods. Let's GO!

I have a Ph.D. in Teaching and Learning, and I trained future teachers at the college level for more than a decade. While my area of expertise is literacy, I have helped hundreds of students write teaching philosophy statements. My teaching methods include multiple modalities, including music, movement, and rhyme. Learning should not be a chore; it should be fun and exciting!
