TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Time flies when you're having fun! I've taught fourth grade for more than 30 years and love it more now than ever. My mission is to create enjoyable, engaging, standards-based materials for my classroom and yours.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Enjoy teaching! How? Engage students in challenging, meaningful work. My students enjoy exploring, digging deeper, and connecting content to big ideas. Technology tools, such as PowerPoint presentations, Internet sites, and You Tube videos, make learning fun. For specific ideas, visit my blog, Enjoy Teaching.
