I taught Kindergarten and First Grade of 13 years before becoming a Media Coordinator. I have been an elementary Media Coordinator for 11 years. I have also written Sunday School and Vacation Bible School Curriculum for Preschoolers for LifeWay for 28 years.
Child and book centered! My Media Center is a busy, fun place. I love to find the right book to hook a child on reading. I love to find ways to help teachers meet the needs of their classes. I love kids, books, and my job!

My building contractor husband is patient with my hours spent on the computer. My son is a self-employed software writer in NY and my daughter teaches ESL at my school and 2 others. She posted her first lesson on TpT before me... so now the competition is on! March banner background and lettering from © 2013 The 3AM Teacher http://the3amteacher.blogspot.com/
