TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been fortunate to be teaching elementary school for 25 years! I have taught grades K-5 in both the public school and private settings. I recently switched to rural education. I am currently teaching a second and third grade combination class in the rural community of Blue Diamond, NV. We are very much like a one room school house only with 3 rooms. I absolutely love teaching and making products that help kids learn.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use teachable moments. I plan the day and lessons carefully. However I am open to making adjustments as needed. I teach children not lessons.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been recognized many times by peers and supervisors for various school and districtwide awards through the years including the Cattleman's Association for teacher of the year candidate.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

York College of PA (Undergrad) Penn State Universtiy (Masters Ed.) UNLV (post Masters work) Tuoro University (post Masters work)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am happily married with 2 fabulous boys. I love teaching and creating materials for teachers. I am excited to share them with you and hope you like them.
