I've been an educator for the past 28 years as an elementary teacher, principal, middle school teacher, and college professor. I'm always drawn back to the classroom no matter where I am, children give me creative energy!
Inspired by constructivist learning, hands-on, minds-on teaching. Love kids to learn through the love of learning, reading, writing, and investigation. Integration of the arts into all subjects. When we "do" learning, we know learning.
