Over a twenty-five year period have taught grades 5-12 inclusive. Five years teaching exclusively Business Education classes. Last twenty years teaching various Junior and High School subjects. Served as school Principal for 3 years and Vice-Principal for 1 year. Have also participated in school wide evaluations. Currently retired from teaching and enjoying re-developing and sharing my years of collected educational materials.
Teaching and learning is a quest of personal discovery, one for me based on traditional methods, hands-on experiences, and a technology-rich environment.
