TEACHING EXPERIENCE

45 years of private instruction, subbing, and full-time teaching.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Never underestimate the potential of a child!!! My musical is a challenge, but a challenge they will take on with gusto! Never keep students from going to the bathroom. I'm fully aware that the idea is contagious, but some really do have to go! I have a nightmare story from when I was in 2nd Grade. This was 61 years ago, but it's the most pronounced memory I have from those early years.
