|Qualifications & Experience:||B.A. in History of Art; M.Ed. in TESOL
I am qualified to conduct annual homeschool evaluations for children of any age, grade level, and learning type. Given my training and professional experience, this includes English language learners and special needs students. I am also especially enthusiastic about supporting and evaluating Roman Catholic homeschooling families. I have 24 years’ teaching experience, including 8 years’ experience as a teacher-trainer in the Department of Teacher Preparation at Indian River State College and 6 years’ experience as homeschool Mom/teacher.
|What to Expect at Your Evaluation:||Evaluations are comfortable and relaxed, usually taking 20-30 minutes per child, in your home, my home, or at a neutral location. First, I will look through the student’s work with the parent and child. The child will lead a discussion with me and the parent by explaining and discussing his or her work and performance. (Details on what to expect will be emailed to parents prior to the evaluation appointment.) Then the parent(s) and I will meet so that I can answer any questions and provide counseling on relevant topics. At the end of the meeting, I will leave the required evaluation form with the parent.|
