TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 19 years! :) I spent the first 9 years of my teaching career as a middle school English teacher, and I have been an elementary gifted teacher for the past 9 years. Loved every minute...well, mostly every minute ;)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is always changing in response to the students. One thing that doesn't change, however, is that I have a true passion for teaching! I absolutely love what I do, and I hope that my students and other teachers can see that when I teach.
