An elementary school teacher for 22 years, I also hold a 7-12 English/Language Arts license. I am a district leader in literacy training, particularly for literature, writing, grammar, and vocabulary development.
I love to design and implement integrated units of study that incorporate the humanities, art, literature and drama. In a different vein, I also love to teach math and science in ways that are hands-on and relevant to the world, and I often bring guest experts, mentors, and workshops into the classroom.
