I have had the pleasure of teaching for over 30 years, including grades K-8, online learning and professional development for teachers. I've presented at numerous national conferences on topics including "Creating Joyful Classrooms in an Age of Accountability."
I create time regularly for hands-on, small group learning stations in my classroom. The focus on integrating subject areas and differentiating for multiple learning styles increases student success and time on task.

My children are grown now and I'm a grandma! It's fun to bring my years of experience and love of curriculum design to this collaborative venue.
