I have thirty years of experience in teaching. Most of those years were in kindergarten. I tried to make learning a fun experience. Most of the children thought they were just playing, when in reality they were learning. Many of the students learned to read during their kindergarten experience. I even had a mildly retarded student who learned to read using my First Phonics curriculum ideas.
Learning the fun way was always my style. My students would think they were just playing, but they learned the easy and fun way.

I grew up in a minister’s home. My father (Rev. T. N. Ward) and grandfather (Rev. L. M. Justice) were Church of God ministers. I desire to pass on my Christian heritage and bring the values I learned during childhood to children today. I became a Christian when I was only 5 years old. (You can read about my experience in the Shy Sharon chapter book.) I have spent most of my life in some type of ministry as a Sunday School teacher, soloist, choir member, children’s choir director, vacation Bible school teacher, and many other positions in my church.
