Being an educator for 25 + yrs. in public and private school, I feel I have excellent knowledge in all subject areas in elementary and special education and also could also tutor GED/ABE students in all areas needed to pass the GED test since I did teach four years in Pinellas and Marion County Schools. In GED, my strengths include all subjects and basic math skills prior to algebra I and algebra II and Geometry. I had a year and a half 2009-2010 teaching as a VE teacher in a high school setting in Marion County Schools.

friend for over 25 years.
I can say with confidence
that she is hard working,
quality minded and
dedicated to her
profession. One of
Connie’s assets is her
tenacity and creative
problem solving ability.
Connie will leave no
stone unturned to find a
solution when others
have given up. Connie is
old fashioned in her
sense of dependability
and loyalty. At the same
time, she’s very modern
when it comes to using
new, innovative teaching
techniques and
technology.”
