I have been a full-time elementary teacher for 26 years. My experience is mainly with upper elementary, but I have taught math to Kindergarten-ninth grade students. I am also experienced teaching English to ESL students and adults. I provide a safe learning environment where students learn confidence and hard work. During my teaching experience, I have also been able to teach beginning guitar, singing, and recorder lessons to classes of different ages.
Teaching and children are my passions, so whenever I get to incorporate both, I feel fulfilled. The greatest feeling is taking a difficult concept and breaking it down for a student to understand. The look of excitement over a student's face when they understand an otherwise difficult concept is exhilarating.
I was well thought out and well done.
Smart. Loving yet firm. Kind yet strong.
Mrs. Welty taught two of my grandchildren and her lesson plans were tailored to meet their needs. She could always be found mentoring or spending 1:1 time with individual students. She was firm when she had to be but fair and gentle and the kids responded well to her manner of teaching and eager to please. “Welty” is a household name here at home and we are proud and happy to say that we got to watch their you g family grow up over the years and we’ve shared life’s experiences almost like a family. My grandchildren now grown, still speak fondly of Mrs. Welty as we now and again remember those grade school days that went by too fast
She can explain clearly the topic and engages student participation.
First of all, I try to build trust with the student by assessing their level and encouraging them in the process. With my experience in the classroom with students and parents, I work with the student to create goals. It is certainly a team effort.
I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.
I have done one-on-one tutoring for over 20 years.
I am a STEM certified teacher from the National Institute for STEM Education.
