I am a wife of 24 years to a retired Elementary Teacher. I have 5 beautiful and highly educated children. I have practiced the strategies I present in my own classroom with measurable success. I am currently teaching and plan to do so as long as I draw breath my lungs. Teaching is my life. If there is anything I can do to inspire and assist another teacher or parent I will do so! I believe collaboration and sharing cultivate the greatest success in educational instruction. Thank you for visiting my store.
