I like to try to be the most helpful I can be! Let me know what you would need help with, and I'll respond, whether or not I can help you. My passion is to play violin and to help students.

I went to a Seventh-day Adventist school from Kindergarten to grade twelve. Then, I went to a Seventh-day Adventist university. After that, I volunteered as an elementary school teacher in Majuro, Marshall Islands for two years (2015-2017).

I then was a teacher's aid in Port Hardy, British Columbia in the 2017-2019 school year. From September - December 2018, I taught grades 1,3, and 4 in a small Seventh-day Adventist school in Bella Coola, British Columbia. Now, I'm an on-call teacher aid / teacher for all the schools in the Bella Coola valley. These schools include School District 49, Nuxalk Acwsalcta Academy of Learning, and the Seventh-day Adventist school.

Volunteer Elementary School Teacher
Aug 2016 - Jun 2017
Laura Adventist School

I taught a grade 1/2 class for the first 3/4ths of the year, and then I taught preKinder - Kindergarten for the remainder of the school year. This was on the same island, Majuro, but into the country side of it. The Students' first language was Marshallese, so I had to help them understand English more while teaching all subjects (Math, English, Science, Social Studies, Bible, Art, PE, and Music). The teaching was based on the American curriculum.

Fiddle · In home

Mihaela is classically trained, but enjoys all kinds of music for fiddle/violin, and is quick at picking up new melodies, and also playing by ear. This skill makes her really good at being about to help with whatever songs a student would like to learn. Because of her computer skills, she is also able to introduce the various apps that are available for enhancing practice on the instrument. She has a really good ear, and because she sings harmony well, she can also play spontaneous harmony for fiddle tunes. Mihaela is a kind, patient and fun loving person, which I think would make her great with children. I am many years her senior, and have enjoyed a few lessons with her.
