I am a success story. I have been visually impaired my entire life (considered legally blind) and was told I should go to a special school. When my mom chose to keep me in public school, I showed everyone I could rise to the challenge. I not only completed all of my years of schooling, I went on to become a Nationally Board Certified teacher in a regular ed classroom. I am living proof you can achieve whatever you put your mind to and there are no limits. I know teachers will enjoy my free content as well as find reasonably priced kits that can be poster-sized and will save them tons of money in the stores. Teachers will be able to receive one-of-a-kind graphics from my store. I am about to embark on my 15th year of teaching. Nine of those years have been in private schools, the rest in low-income urban schools. I consider it an honor and a challenge to meet the needs of my students on their individual levels. I love technology and implement it into my daily teaching routines and strategies. I hope that I can share some creations with you all on this site that you will enjoy and implement into your own classrooms. I have taught every grade within my Early Childhood Certification.
I believe in hands-on learning. I believe students learn best when they can create/construct their knowledge. I believe there are times when whole group instruction is needed. I believe ALL students CAN learn.
