I have taught for forty-two years.
I am more of a facilitator. I prefer engaging activities for students rather than worksheets.

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. in 1974. I earned a master's degree in 1991 from Appalachian State University.
I am a retired teacher, but I continue to fill in for teachers who are on leave for extended periods of time. When I am not working, I volunteer in classrooms.
