TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching in high school, when I got my first job as an aide in a neighborhood day care center. My second day on the job it was just me (16 years old) and 24 four year olds. I loved that job! I began a long career of learning, observing, evaluating, constructing, redoing, changing, inventing, growing, making, and living, back there at the preschool. During the 33 years I spent working in schools, 24 of them were spent as a general education classroom teacher. I spent 4 years working as a support teacher (resource specialist and intervention teacher) and 5 years as a special day class teacher. I enjoy diversity and change, so I rarely taught the same grade two years in a row, and more than half of my career was spent in multi-graded classrooms. This gives me a pretty broad perspective!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Everything I have done since starting out as a preschool teacher has been focused on thematic instruction that is child centered and designed to make learning real. I believe that children have really learned something when their view of the world has changed as a result of their educational activities. I believe actively involving children in their learning through simulation games and reproducing "real life" experiences, while immersing them in science, social studies, and art content is a great way to truly change their knowledge and understanding, no matter what their age or developmental level.
