I have taught elementary for 20 years in an inner city school. I have taught a diverse student population including English-Language Learners, transitional Special Education students, and the Gifted and Talented. I am a mentor teacher, literacy coach, curriculum writer and teacher-leader. I enjoy creating and presenting Professional Development workshops for teachers.
