TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Never stop learning because life never stops teaching. With 34 years of teaching experience, I know how true this is!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have clear and concise expectations for my students and they rise to that challenge! I believe in a classroom with mutual respect. And engagement is the key! Keeping students engage and actively learning eliminates many management issues.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have survived over THIRTY years in the classroom and I still like my job and love my kids. What more can I say?

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in a small town, I went to a small university. I teach in a small school district. But the knowledge and skills that I can share are universal.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in "gold" country, in the rugged mountains of Eastern Oregon. My escape comes in the form of rides in the mountains and re-discovering the past. I believe in those "golden teaching moments". I believe that experience is golden. I believe that every once in a while, you discover a precious nugget, and that should be shared!
