Over a period of more than 20 years, I taught children in a regular classroom (every grade K-12!) and also taught deaf education. I have also been a teacher at the junior college level, teaching classes that included art, writing, and grammar. When I was not physically in the classroom, I wrote curriculum for major textbook companies. Today I write curriculum full time.
My job as a teacher is to encourage and exhort, to make the child want to learn. With some children, this is a tall order and requires finding that one thing that is "worth" the effort for them.
Published curriculum with several textbook companies including The Princeton Review, Group Publishing, SureScore, Anthology (for their client Scott Foresman), and Schawk (for their client Learning Resources). My own book, Taking Hearing Impairment to School, is distributed by the Guidance Channel.
Bachelor of Science and Masters courses in Learning Disabilities.
I am an artist and a teacher. I love learning!
