TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have just retired from public education after 42 years of teaching. I do workshops at the local college during the summer for teachers. My workshops include one on how to chunk the standards in Reading and math. I train in how to use the cognitive process of instruction, which is a method of instruction based on the work of Bruner, Vgotsky, and other theorists in the field of cognition. It works and makes teaching enjoyable! All of the lessons on TPT are based on this method. I also do a workshop on classroom management and use some of the work of Dr. Harry Wong and the late Dr. Stephen Glenn.

MY TEACHING STYLE

With the demanding state standards, it can at times seem daunting as to how to teach all of the subjects. It can be done! The strategy I use was developed by the late Dr. Joan Fulton. She and I worked closely for 36 years. She was not only my colleague and former professor but a very dear friend. I used her approach to teach my students and it worked. The Cognitive Process of Instruction [CPOI] is a teaching strategy that is based on the four core technologies in Cognitive Science. One, the cognitive process of instruction; two, instructional planning for accountability; three, high level thinking processes; four, metacognitive strategy based tasks. Using these principles to plan and teach a lesson brings the joy back into teaching. With this strategy, category networks and strategic knowledge replace repetition, recall, and worksheets. The learning principles are based on the increase in stored knowledge. When the category network is increased each student can achieve!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I own the home in which I was born. It was built for my arrival in 1947. I remodeled it twice to make it more comfortable for my mother and father, who both enjoyed it before they passed. After the passing of my mother, I remodeled it one more time for me. I have always lived in this home, because I love my home and my small town. Blossom Belle, a little She-poo who is featured in my store is the love of my life. She gives me much joy daily. The love of an animal is unconditional and always is freely given. I am blessed to have her in my life. I work very closely with my home church and head up the Distinctive Bazaar of the Northern Neck that occurs in October, November, and December. Our bazaar is unlike any church bazaar anyone has ever attended, because it is like walking into a gift shop. We tithe on our earnings and support local charities. Now that I am retired, I can spend more time creating the unique gifts.
