TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for twenty plus years in the same school district. I have taught kindergarten through sixth grade at different times during those years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think of my teaching style as ecclectic. Every year I learn more about teaching and I gain different tools to reach a diverse population of students.
