All About Me

Debbie- photo for flyer-2I am a K – 3 private tutor. I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to have those “I’ve Got It” moments when he or she has the “lightbulb” turn on and learning becomes exciting and fun! I have twenty-seven years experience in the public school education system, including seventeen years in second grade, nine years in first grade, and one year in kindergarten. During my career in teaching, I worked in the Howard County Public School System for twenty-two of my twenty-seven years, and was the 2nd grade team leader for eight years. Therefore, I am very familiar with the Howard County Curriculum, including the Common-Core educational philosophy. I also have a master’s degree in guidance counseling from Loyola University in Baltimore.  I retired on July 1, 2015 to spend more time with my grandchildren. I have nine!
