20+ years of teaching, mostly 4th and 5th grade. But I have also taught 3rd and 1st grades and in the BSEP program for the US Army.
Very eclectic. I will use every trick I can think of, including singing, dancing, and cooking to help my students learn.
I was Teacher of the Year at Aberdeen (NC) Elementary School, a PAEMST nominee, and was nominatd for a Golden Apple Award and a Carolina Hurricane Outstanding Teacher nominee.
I received a BSEd degree from Mansfield University of PA. I also hold a certificate for teaching the academically gifted.
My hobbies include reading, reading on the beach, taking care of our three dogs and 2 cats, and participating with an 18th Century Living History group.
