I have been teaching since 1987. Most of my experience has been in the state of Maryland. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I currently support professional staff in their professional growth and development. I am a teacher leader and coach. My primary focus is on instructional planning. I also teach a Maryland State Department of Education reading course to secondary teachers for reading in the content area. I also teach a technology course, as well as leadership courses. I learn something new each and every day.
I like a very well organized classroom, with LOTS of student movement and talk. Children learn best when they are TALKING!

I am a true technology explorer. I am a webmaster, tweeter, and creator of instructional materials for my teachers. I am in love with my iPad. I have 3 children and a husband who keep me super busy when I'm not exploring the internet or reading. All of my children play the great sport of Lacrosse. This year my children are in 3 different levels of school: College, High School, and Middle School. They keep me on my toes.
