I have 26 years of teaching experience in gifted and talented education, special education, & 3rd grade. I currently teach in an exciting schoolwide enrichment program in Texas for ALL students, not just GT, called the Challenge Lab! I am also a partner with Challenge Lab Enrichment Consultants, LLC...we present Gifted/Talented in-services & consult with districts and schools on setting up Challenge Labs. Visit my blog at http://challengelabenrichment.blogspot.com/ for more info!
Differentiation is my specialty! I teach with hands-on activities whenever possible, allow students choice, and gear activities towards students' learning styles & interests.
I have worked in the regular and gifted classrooms in a National Title I Distinguished School since 2002. I was chosen Oak Crest Middle School Teacher of the Year in 1994. I have presented in my own school districts & campus, at the Texas Association for Gifted/Talented conference for several years, for the regional education service center, and at the annual conference of the New England Council for Gifted and Talented.
I have a B.A. in Elementary & Special Education, Kindergarten Endorsement, and a M.Ed. in School Administration & Supervision, both from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
