TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 32 years in Virginia. I am currently a Title I teacher working in Reading remediation, grades 1-3 in Chesapeake VA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in a very hands on approach to teaching. Working with weaker students, I am constantly trying to come up with creative activities that will keep my students interested and willing to work to their fullest potential.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

1986 Teacher of the Year, 1997 Teacher of the Year, 1999 Reading Teacher of the Year, 2011 Reading Teacher of the Year,

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-4, Master's Degree in Reading K-12

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been married for 31 years and have two wonderful children. Both grown and homeowners. Their rooms have been dismantled and made into a craft room and an office. So I am seriously hoping they will NEVER come back to live. But if they do I would take them in with open arms.
