TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a full-time teacher since 1987. I have had 29 years of teaching experience in a wide variety of settings including rural, urban, inner city, wilderness, and hospital based schools. I have had experience working with elementary through high school students in traditional school settings as well as a hospital based inpatient psychiatry school, a therapeutic wilderness school, and a crisis unit for juvenile offenders. I have had extensive experience working with special education students in both inclusion and self-contained classroom settings. I have taught all academic subject areas. Elementary, Special Education, and Behavioral Disorders

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students in my class learn by experience, collaboration, research, experimentation, and MAKING MISTAKES! We use technology to research, practice concepts, and engage in online experiments. Students' ideas are always encouraged. Peer tutoring, flexible choices, and UDL are a big part of the dynamics of the learning that occurs in this classroom.
