TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Early Childhood Educator for 32 years with Moore Public Schools.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am an early childhood educator because I believe strongly in the importance of early intervention. I believe that a child’s first teachers have an enormous ability to shape a child’s future learning potential. Research shows that teacher quality is the most important school-related factor influencing student achievement. Teachers should strive to be the best teacher that they can be. As a teacher, I love the challenge of creating a program that addresses student diversity and builds success for each individual child.
