Teaching is still my passion after three and a half decades. Currently, I am teaching 8th grade English and Literature, but this is quite a switch for me! All of my products are a result of my work with elementary students. I served intellectually gifted students in grades K through 5 in a pull-out program for fifteen years. I also promoted schoolwide enrichment by helping the regular teachers enrich their curriculum and by sponsoring academic contests on my campus.
I am a facilitator of learning! I want my students to make discoveries, to enjoy the process of becoming more competent in all areas, and mostly to LOVE learning!
