TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught second grade for 7 years in a small, rural school. After a short break to raise my children, I was offered a kindergarten position and am still there many years later and loving every minute!I can honestly say that I still jump out of bed each school morning eager to begin the day with my little ones!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that it is the teacher's job to inspire, but after the inspiration, it is then the teacher's job to step back and let the learning begin. Most of my student's day is spent in small groups, but I also believe that much can be learned in a large group setting, too. It is my belief that children learn the best when they are creating, so we do a lot of drawing, cutting, painting, and gluing in my classroom! I love it when my kinders come to school saying "What are we going to make today, Teacher?" I LOVE the love notes they write to me and I love the fact that they LOVE school! I am inspired by my students and cannot think of a better way to live my life.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and have taken MANY graduate level classes in Curriculum design, curriculum mapping, guided reading instruction, gifted education, and math and science curriculum writing. I graduated from Southern Illinois University and my graduate courses have been taken at both the University of Illinois and Eastern Illinois University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have 3 grown children of which I am extremely proud! My husband is a corn and soybean farmer and I have formed some wonderful relationships with my colleagues at the parochial school in which I teach. I have been granted many blessings and for them, I am thankful! My daughter is an artist and has contributed her beautiful paintings to a few of my products. It has been fun to collaborate with her!
