TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over 22 years and I am still learning something new everyday! Couldn't think of anything better or more rewarding to do. I've taught 3rd, 6th, and 8th in public school. Now, I teach adults in a private school. Love teaching any grade or age.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Very visual and definitely not a procrastinator- I like to plan things out and prepare. I love having fun! I think learning should be fun and memorable. I learn best when I am engaged. Don't read to me or lecture me- involve me! I love to move. Sitting still is not my thing! If I don't like to sit still then.... my students probably don't either!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My two most precious honors were the Inspirational Teacher of the year 2010 and the HOOT award Nov. 2013 because the students selected the Inspirational Teachers of the Year and a parent submitted an article to the newspaper about me for the HOOT award. Being chosen by students and parents was awesome. You can't imagine my surprise!!! Or joy!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I had dreams of being a concert pianist and spent hours (lifetimes) practicing. It was in my second year of college that a very wise piano instructor asked me if I still had joy in playing or had it become a job. She was right, and I changed my major to Business Administration- talk about a complete change. Graduated (on time) and went right to work. Loved merchandising, but something was missing. I even tried my hand at owning an insurance agency, but again... something was missing. My mom reminded me that one of my favorite 'games' as a child was to play teacher. I would sit my dolls in chairs and drag out my little blackboard and teach them. I was actually my teacher's worst nightmare. I dug through their trash for any thrown away worksheets and lessons that I could use in my school at home. I even liked to play hooky so I could stay home and read (mom put a stop to playing when I was "sick")! I'm sure when I see my teachers today and they ask what I do now, they cringe when I say "Teach!" OR maybe they chuckle hoping that I'll get paybacks (there have been plenty). Two years ago I made another life change- leave public school. I still love the kids and I love teaching, but the politics and stress were robbing me of the joy. Now, I blog about teachers issues (hoping to identify and help fellow teachers), create resources, teach adjunct classes, and substitute teach on my days off. Busy!!! But, I LOVE it!! Life is good. God has taught me how to be content with less. Bachelors in Business Administraton (with a minor in piano) Bachelors in Elementary Education Masters in Elementary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love people and pets. I am a kitty mom to four furry felines. Love to read and have many hobbies. I am thankful for each and every blessing from my heavenly Father. One of my best friends got me started in TpT. She liked my lessons and activities and urged me to put them down in writing (they are in my head) and put them in a store. At first it was difficult to transition from head to typing, but it is getting easier. I am thankful that Lynne had confidence in me and encouraged me.
