I have been a teacher for more than 25 years and I love my job every day! I've worked in every grade level through six grade and find the unique benefits of each level as challenging and inspiring. I have presented numerous workshops in the areas of standards, classroom management, mathematics, and inquiry learning.
Children are naturally inquisitive. I choose to use that natural curiosity to enhance the learning process through inquiry and creativity. I encourage independence in learning by facilitating an environment that makes each child accountable for his/her learning and accomplishments. community of learners emerges as each member of the classroom realizes his/her potential and contribution. The message that I try to instill in my students is that lifelong learning is an adventure and can happen throughout your life.

I am a mom of three younger children (ages 15, 12 and 10) and a 27-year-old stepson . I am married to to a teacher and we enjoy spending time as a family. We like to travel, dine out, go camping and go exploring. I enjoy working with children, and I appreciate the challenges and rewards that come with teaching young learners. Even after 25 years, I am always amazed at the end the year, how much a child can grow, change, and emerge as an individual. That is perhaps, the most amazing feeling in the world!
