Years Worked As Teacher/Tutor
State Teaching Certifications
I have gone through the formal certification process in the state of Kentucky for Latin P-12 and English/Language Arts 5-12, but I am in the process of transferring that certification to the state of Virginia.
I prefer to work with students in grades 6 and above.
I am a person who has always wanted to reach his full potential and who wants to help other people reach their full potential. More than anything, I enjoy empowering other people to learn and grow. I have taught Language Arts, History, and Latin in public and private schools while also providing tutoring services in a variety of subjects. I was promoted to the Head of the Latin Department in my last school, but I stepped away from that position when I accepted a full-time middle school teaching position in the Chesapeake Public School system, one of the top districts in the state of Virginia. I am currently pursuing an M.A. in Classical Languages at the University of Georgia in their Summer Institute program. I previously received a B.A. in Classical Languages and English and an M.A. in Latin P-12 and English/Language Arts 5-12 Alternative Education at Asbury University and the University of Louisville.
When I was in the 7th grade, I made it my goal to attend Asbury University when I graduated high school and was accepted to that university during my senior year of high school. When I decided that I wanted to become a Latin teacher, I changed my major to Classical Languages and pursued a major that they did not officially offer at that time, inspiring them to reinstate the program and the graduate program in Latin P-12 Alternative Education by advocating for their return through the official accrediting agency. I have been placed on the Dean’s List multiple times for my GPA in college and have become the recipient of the Richard A. LaFleur Teaching Scholarship offered to students at the University of Georgia.
