I like to think of myself as having been in the business of education since 2000. I started in educating clients on the importance of health, exercise, goal setting, and injury/disease prevention in the private sector. While earning my Master's Degree in English I taught Freshman Composition at the University for two years. Here is where I first got in front of a group in a traditional teaching setting. I then moved onto teaching in the public school system from 2005 through 2008 and private sector from 2008 to 2009. I've taken some time off from teaching but the bug never left me,
I have a varied approach to teaching and don't really like to put myself in a box. I teach to the student as an individual while keeping the classroom needs as a foundation for student support. I feel i made an impact on students' lives when I was in the classroom even though I may not have always been fond of the school district.

I wrote this book in 2010 and in reading through it the theory is sitll sound but the language is antiquated. Florida, for instance, has new standards from when I was teaching. I am in the process of updating the book but more importantly I'm working on creating lesson plans for all of the Florida Standards starting from Kindergarten and working my way up. I love writing lesson plans and I love giving things away. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
