Aside from thirty plus years of teaching, I have three boys of my own (one a set of twins) who took me through every adventure and learning experience one could ever imagine! Life experiences taught me more than I ever learned in University.
Engaging the students in hands-on, integrated, inquiry based learning that has WOW! appeal!
My greatest award is when my previous students come to visit me in my classroom with their own children and tell me that I had a profound and positive affect on their lives!
Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Secondary Education, specializing in Special Education and ESL/ELD.
I operate a business called "The Zoo That Comes To You" where I introduce children to exotic animals and teach them about respect and responsibility for these amazing creatures. This journey began after naming my oldest son Noah. He brought me home every creature he could get his little hands on. He is now thirty and the adventure still continues!
