Thirty years serving multiple roles in public education. Textbook content contributor for several major textbook companies and Differentiation "Enrichment" Consultant for several school districts.
After spending thirty years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Enrichment Consultant" in which I work with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct professor supervising student teachers. Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years. I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of the curriculum standards. The resources I offer are "print and go" and are fun and creative. They provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even the brightest of learners.
