TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In the education business for 37 years in 2nd through 7th grades, and also substituted in K through 12th grade. Served as a Mentor Teacher and supervised several student teachers and many observers. Conducted parent workshops and supervised parent volunteers. Presented aide inservices about principles of learning. Performed demonstration lessons. Developed learning games.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Believe in hands-on, experience-based learning as a most effective tool for retention of material. Learning materials should be accessible and clearly labeled to facilitate student use and responsibility. Use close observation of student behavior and empathetic approach to build rapport with students. Monitor and adjust to student needs. Analyze critical attribute of concept in order to zero in on most important points to be retained and mastered. Practice persistence and deliberateness in reteaching and expecting mastery of hard-to-master learnings.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I enjoy doing oral history interviews to grasp how people's past experiences differ. Doing careful research helps me become a "history detective." I am fascinated by the study of people and how they choose to make a difference in the world with the way they live their lives.
