I have taught 27 years in regular and inclusion K-6 classrooms in Arizona. During these years, I have presented in state, national and international conferences/conventions as a keynote speaker and topic presenter. I am a published author with Scholastic.
My teaching style engages children through hands-on, center approach, reading/writing connected activities that interest and motivate children to want to learn.
