CBA Alumnus ISO New/Used Curriculum *All Subjects, Publishers & Editions Accepted*

Hello! My name is Kimberlee Green. I graduated from CBA in 2012 and was Mrs. Abbott’s Teaching Assistant for Composition from Fall 2013-Spring 2017. Since leaving CBA, I have been looking for ways to serve homeschool students and families in some capacity.

Recently, I began selling curriculum that my siblings and I had finished using. It started as a way to simply declutter our schoolroom, but it has burgeoned into something more. I love being able to connect homeschoolers with the resources that they need at the prices that they can afford. I’m active in several homeschool curriculum buy/sell groups on Facebook, and many families in those groups are young and simply looking to educate their children on a budget. Some parents are in the military or law enforcement; others are pastors or missionaries; still others work in corporate America or in blue collar jobs. Whatever the parents’ vocations, their desire to stretch their educational dollars is the same. I have been able to help meet that need for a few dozen families, but am looking to do more.

To that end, I’m looking to connect with “empty nester” (or very nearly so) homeschool parents who have curriculum that they no longer need or want. Spring, summer and early fall are when many home educators are looking ahead to the next school year, settling on a course of study for each child, fine tuning their budgets, and hunting for bargains.

If you are looking to downsize your library, would like to make some extra money, or simply desire to bless another homeschool family, please give me a call (1-2 pm and 7-9 pm Monday-Friday; 1-9 pm on Saturday/Sunday), or send me an email/text message with your name and contact information so that we can discuss specifics.

Thank you and God bless!

– Kimberlee

Tutoring: Language-Based Learning Disabilities/Autism/ADHD Kids who just need some extra help

I have a masters degree from GWU in Special Education/Language disabilities and over 35 years experience working with children who have difficulty learning. I specialize in language-based learning disabilities and autism, but also work with students who do not have special needs but would benefit from extra help with homework, organization and study skills.
I am also an excellent diagnostician and can figure out why a child has problems learning, and
remediate the underlying causes of a child’s problems.

Skill areas include: auditory memory/discrimination/sequencing,
visual memory/discrimination/sequencing
fine-motor/keyboarding/visual memory-motor skills/handwriting/cursive
reading (phonics, phonics, structural analysis, comprehension, reasoning
written language
elementary math/basic Algebra
Excellent references! (One reference is a parent whose son attends a program at the school.)
Please contact (240) 603-6538 if you’d like to discuss your child with me.

Spring Musical Auditions at Covenant Life

Covenant Life Church Spring Youth Production Auditions
Saturday November 10, 2018
Audition Slots start at 9am and continue until 4pm – every 10 minutes
Sign up Genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0C4CAEAF2EA2F58-youth
This year we are doing it a bit differently! We have set up a sign up genius for audition slots- there are 10 minute slots so it is a short, quick, personal audition. There are two slots for those who are only interested in an ensemble role and not a main cast role (12pm and 3:50pm). All other slots will only allow one person to sign up per 10 minutes. Youth from other churches are encouraged to audition – if you know anyone who might want to be a part of the production this year encourage them to sign up. They must be active in their church youth group or coming to 10:31. We are hoping to produce Godspell this year but we can’t make that decision until we see who comes for auditions. We need to see if we have the talent and the numbers we need. If you are interested in being involved this year make auditions a priority. We are planning call backs for Saturday November 17, 2018. If you cannont make the auditions on November 10 we may be able to see you on the 17th. Please contact Mrs. Smith at csmith@covlife.org if you have a conflict for the 10th to discuss scheduling an audition for another time.
