After 35 years of teaching in an urban district, I retired to help take care of my three granddaughters. During my teaching career I taught all subjects from second to fourth grade. I also taught seventh and eighth grade reading. I spent my entire career in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
I believe in learning centers or stations. My teaching style developed from my art experiences, being right-brain, and teaching all kinds of children at one time.
The most important acknowledgments I have ever received are the many thank-you notes, drawings and visits year after year from my students.
I graduated from Kutztown University with an elementary and art teaching degree. I also earned my masters in elementary education.
I love learning, reading, researching and writing. Most of all, I enjoy creating and being creative. I enjoy creating in many areas. I have an English garden which is around thirty years old which I designed. I grow and dry flowers to make wreaths and arrangements. I make magnetic materials for learning activities. I am writing learning centers for busy teachers using my experience. I enjoy introducing my three granddaughters to the joy of learning. My daughter is a vice-principal at the high school she graduated from.
