On a personal note, I have three children, who are all grown and married. I homeschooled my children from kindergarten to the eighth grade. My youngest daughter had her first child in 2017 and Hayley is my pride and joy. Nothing is better than having a grandchild.
While teaching online, I created most of my curriculum. God is amazing how he trains you without you even knowing it. He has prepared me for "such a time as this". All the curriculum was created with God's knowledge and my pen. I can honestly say I had no idea God said so much about math. I have been involved with math most of my life and love it. I am only now learning about math through God's eyes and I have to admit it is sometimes mind-blowing. He has challenged me to really look for Him. When you have a chance to see even one of the projects that God has allowed me to write down from Him, you can tell it is not me. I hope you give me and Mrs. Self the opportunity to teach your child.
We are both very dedicated and love the Lord with all our hearts. We are committed to teaching children not only math but how God really did create it. Click over to Our Programs to view an example of a project and lesson page.
I have been an online teacher for 6 years with Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow. I have a four-year degree in electro-mechanical engineering from Miami University and a master's in education from Xavier University. I was fortunate enough to earn a blended online learning certificate from University of Cincinnati. I have a current teaching certificate in the state of Ohio for 7-12 math.
As a retired professional educator, I am a Master Teacher from Xavier University and I am National Board Certified Teacher. I have 25+ years as a teacher leader in the Classroom (Math & Science), a STEM Lab Teacher and Coordinator, and I have written curriculum at the district level in math and science. My most rewarding teaching experience comes from teaching math and science to hundreds of students, gifted, average and struggling students. I truly enjoy working with children at their individual levels and assisting parents in homeschool settings.
Personally, I am grounded in my faith in Jesus Christ. I am in my 42nd year of marriage, a mother of two children and a grandmother of five. Three of my grandchildren are homeschooled. Currently, I am busy assisting my daughter in homeschooling her three children, I am a leader in our Women’s Community within my church, and I am the writing and developing curriculum for “His Vessel Academy.” His Vessel Academy is Christian math program for homeschoolers that incorporates the mathematics found in the Word of God. The curriculum is developed within a problem-based framework, focusing on rich problem solving that is embedded in Biblical lessons.
I have been teaching high school mathematics for the last 8 years, including 7 years of online teaching experience. I have earned a bachelors degree in Adolescent Math Education grades 7-12 from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and graduated in the top of my class. I have taught a variety of courses including Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Integrated Math 2 and 3. I currently reside in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband and two children.
