I am an experienced teacher who is fascinated by how the brain learns. My products reflect years of studying brain research and 39 years of teaching experience. I've got a lot of tricks up my sleeve!
I have done much studying of recent brain research, and look for ways to include proven methods into my teaching. My activities are typically social and fun, as this promotes learning! I bring experience as well as a passion for learning into my resources and my classroom.
My students have given me many awards! :)
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a focus on reading from Plymouth University in Plymouth, NH . I have a Master of Education degree in Creative Arts in Learning from Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass.
Besides close to 40 years of teaching, I also have extensive training and in musical theatre, dance and voice. Being from the Boston area, I can't help but be a fan of Boston sports, especially the Red Sox!
