TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started in a K/1 combo class in 1985, and although I loved my own children when they were 5, I don't like other people's 5 year olds. :-) On the other hand, I ADORE 10 year olds. 2014-2015 will be my 30th year of teaching 5th grade (with a few 4/5 and 5/6 combos thrown in there). I may move up to high school history some day soon, but for now, I'll keep loving on my preteens!

MY TEACHING STYLE

"Guide on the side rather than a sage on the stage"

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Meh. Do we really need to go there?

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA San Diego State University: 1984; California Teaching Credential: 1985 MA Humanities; History focus: 2012

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Single mom since 1994 to my daughter, Keegan (25) and son, Brendan (21). Keegan has her BA in Philosophy/Theology and an MS in Library & Information Science. Brendan is almost done with his BS in Civil Engineering.
