TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Thirty years serving multiple roles in public education. Textbook content contributor for several major textbook companies and Differentiation "Enrichment" Consultant for several school districts.

MY TEACHING STYLE

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 work for a local university supervising student teachers as a field representative.

My teaching experience includes several years as a classroom teacher in Iowa, Nebraska and Texas in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade. As well I have had the honor of serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing and Data Coach and several years as a Gifted Specialist.

I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years as well as a presenter in which I trained educators to use several different reading and math curriculum. Inadvertently, this experience provoked a realization that there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher preparation and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of the curriculum standards.

The resources I offer are "print and go" and ready to use in your classroom. They provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even the brightest of learners.
