TEACHING EXPERIENCE

From K to 5, G/T to Reading Recovery, and enrichment to Title I, I have taught it all. It was my privilege to develop & co-author a district model for gifted/talented education for 2 districts and to develop & implement a system for mentoring young gifted children with experts in their areas of interest. As an education specialist at the U of IL, I developed differentiated curriculum and evaluation tools for gifted students and lectured graduate classes in G/T. Additionally, I have guest lectured at the local community college and IL State Univ. Reading Recovery training, while rigorous and demanding, has improved every aspect of my teaching. The training has made me a better observer and problem solver. The richness of my experiences allows me to be a versatile and expansive developer of curricula.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Leading children to self-discovery makes me the guide on the side; rather than the sage on the stage.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Phi Delta Kappa Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society, 100 Outstanding Seniors (Univ. of IL), Outstanding Young Women of America; Master teacher

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors and Masters in Early Childhood Education at the U of IL. Additional post-graduate work in gifted education, reading specialization, literacy, Reading Recovery, and technology.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Happily married to my "gem" of a husband, Jim; proud mother of 2 boys and a girl; blessed mother-in-law to a son- and daughter-in-law; doting grandma of 4 precious girls and one terrific boy.
