This is my 33rd year of teaching. I taught ESE students for 20 years and loved it. I have been teaching in a regular second grade classroom since then, and realize the broad spectrum of students in the regular classroom and the need for great learning materials.
I love dinosaurs and Dr. Seuss! I love reading good literature to my students and making learning fun through hands-on centers.

My new passion is Teachers pay Teachers - it is such a great thing for resources made by teachers instead of big companies. Yay. Many thanks to Laine Sutherland/A Little Peace of Africa for the logo design!
