I've taught over 30 glorious years. I am a teacher consultant for Heart of Texas Writing Project, a GEMS trainer, and run writing camps during the summer.
I love to provide learning activities that cause student ownership and student power. Inquiry and memory making tasks are my favorite. I also utilize technology at every opportunity. Finding joy in learning is my goal for students.
I've had articles published in NSTA's magazine, "Science and Children". Lifetime member of PTA.
Graduated from Texas Tech University.
I live with my husband and big dog, Daisy, deep in the HEART of TEXAS.
