Teacher offering classes that push your talents outside the box of traditional education

Methodology

I love education. I enjoy learning and teaching. I feel that education is a two way street that requires participation on both sides (Teacher and Student). When I'm teaching, I learn things as well.

I'm willing to teach anyone how to draw, how to write, or how to create. I want to teach people something that they haven't done before or want to do better, but the bottom line is that I teach people.

People don't belong in boxes. Everybody learns differently. My goal is to discover the best way to pass information on to a student, teach them how to find information on their own, and help them reach their goals. Communication is the foundation for this educational process.

Background

I've worked in education for 18 years (that's a LOT of students). I've taught classes to preschoolers, elementary students, middle school students, high school students, and adults in traditional schools, home schools, and community outreach. Art is my favorite subject, but I've taught classes in gaming, history, language arts, life skills, mathematics, social studies, and many others.

James's resume

I am a husband, a father, an artist, and an educator. I was valedictorian of my class (1981). I have two Bachelor's Degrees (Anthropology and Art) and three Master's degrees (Master's of Education/Special Education, Master's of Teaching/Curriculum and Instruction, and a Master's of Fine Arts/Creative Writing).

I grew up on a ranch (40 acres) in Southern Oregon. We had cats, cattle, chickens, dogs, goats, horses, and sheep. I've mowed lawns, worked in grocery stores, ran a computer lab, worked at a mill, created a database for a law office, been a legal secretary, cooked at an intermediate care facility, worked as an activity director and social services director, helped create a swing bed program at a hospital, taught special needs students, created games for blind students, taught math with dice, showed kids how to draw people and hands, taught kids how to make books and draw comics, and a host of other things.

I like people, and I enjoy working with people.
