||M.Ed Certified in K-12 Art
|Qualifications & Experience:
||I hold a M.Ed in Teaching and Learning from Southeastern University with a BA in Studio Art from Rollins college. As a fellow homeschooling mom and prior art teacher, I know that busy parents, especially with little ones in tow, want simple and straightforward portfolio evaluations. In addition to being state certified for 9 years, I take college level ed courses for professional development. Before entering the teaching field, I spent five years in the test prep and higher education field as Assistant Director of Enrollment Services. I am unschooling friendly and ready to meet your family!
|What to Expect at Your Evaluation:
||Evaluations can take place in your home, my home, a public space or over the internet if you have access to Skype. I'm there to discuss the past year's coursework with the student and to evaluate whether progress has been made. Parents should have an activity log that is written contemporaneously throughout the year as well as a list of the student's reading materials. I'd like to see a few samples of work from the beginning, middle and end of the year that you feel displays the progress your child or children have made. I'm open to viewing online video portfolios, pictures, blogs, virtual coursework - anything! As an evaluator, I am not there to test the student on knowledge, but to evaluate the portfolio itself in a stress-free environment.
