TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over 20 years and still love it! Over the course of my career, I have taught several grade levels. I love the sense of humor children have, and I feel so grateful that I can spend every day with them!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that children learn best when they are having fun. Lessons should never be monotonous; they need to be visually appealing, challenging, and motivating. My students can never predict which teaching tricks I have up my sleeve, and I like it that way. It keeps them engaged! Creativity and a sense of humor are integral parts of my teaching style. I also enjoy incorporating art and music into my lessons when possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Although I have received honors/awards from both my university and school district, my greatest honor is hearing former students (many of whom are now adults) tell me I made a difference in their lives or inspired them. Some have even returned to tell me they want to become (or have become) teachers because of me. I can't think of anything better!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am constantly learning and growing as an educator. In addition to my own graduate and postgraduate studies, I am always looking for new professional development opportunities.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy creating them for TpT!
