I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade for the past 18 years. Prior to that I was the Related Services Coordinator for classified 3-5 year olds for my county. As Math Lead Teacher, I was responsible for helping to implement the BSM (Beginning School Mathematics) program and subsequently the Context For Learning & Investigations math programs. I am (or have been) a member of the Tri-States, Math, Technology and Report Card Committees.
My teaching is always evolving. I believe (as do most of us, I think!) in making programs my own and adapting them to suit the needs of my students.
I have my MS in Elementary Education, plus 90 other masters credits. I also hold certificates for administration (School Building Leader and School District Leader).
