Hello! My name is Raleigh S. I am originally from Houston, TX and I have also lived in Tucson, AZ before settling in Denver, CO.
...I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. I taught elementary school for ten years. I have also done charitable work at Children's Hospital, teaching students who are hospitalized for long periods of time.
...Growing up in the inner city, I experienced the negative effect of low teacher expectations. In my classroom I set high standards for my students despite their background. Having said that, I feel overjoyed at the possibilities that lay ahead.
...On top of this, I am also an aspiring writer and academic. My areas of interest are English, theology and history. Currently, I'm in school completing a liberal studies degree and am finishing a travel memoir that I will be submitting for publication.
...I am warm, kind, and engaging! Working with children has been my lifelong passion, through teaching, non-profit work, babysitting and nannying. I love helping children build confidence as a reader and writer!
