TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching elementary school for over 37 years, I have recently retired, though still very involved in my school. I was a product of the era of change, the 60s, and I wanted to make social justice a reality. I knew education was key. I spent most of my time with second graders, but have taught in some capacity in all elementary levels. I also created and continue to run an after school diversity program at the school called the Free To Be Club. It has been very successful and has serviced at least over 500 students through the 14 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in integrating subjects as much as possible. Studying a selected topic by using reading, writing, math, and sometimes science or social studies skills make the learning meaningful and long lasting. That's one reason my "Wolf Trial" is so successful. It integrates reading, speaking, and civics. I am very attune to promoting intrinsic motivation and run my classroom and lessons to support exciting and interesting learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been awarded twice for "High Achievement" from the Middletown Board of Education. I have received formal State of Connecticut recognition for my diversity program.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Rhode Island College in 1974, majoring in Elementary Education. I received my Masters of Science Degree from Central Connecticut State University in 1977, majoring in Counseling. I received my 6th Year Professional Diploma from Southern Connecticut State University in 2000 in Educational Foundations.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I raised two biracial sons alone after their father died. They are now grown and on their own. I love my pitbull, Buster, best dog I ever had. I love the beach, ocean, rainbows, and shooting stars. I love children. They are the future.
