TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Growing up, I traveled all around the world and lived in many different countries. I learned to speak Spanish at the age of 9 when my family lived in Spain. I have a total of 26 years teaching experience. After I received my M.Ed. from the University of Florida, I began teaching in elementary school, where I taught pull-out remedial classes for grades 2-5 and a section of K-1. Then I taught Pre-K for 5 years, and then Middle School, where I have been in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I have just retired from teaching and now spend my time making resources to help students and teachers succeed. My best experience, of course, has been being a mother and a grandmother to wonderful children and grandchildren. I love making products that will help teachers teach and students learn! I am currently certified in Elementary Education; Middle Grades in the areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies; endorsed as a Teacher Support Specialist; a Reading Specialist K-12, and in Gifted and Talented Education. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow me on Facebook at The HappyEdugator on Facebook. -------------------------------------- Follow me on Instagram at happyedugator.------------------------------------------------------ Follow me on Pinterest at HappyEdugator.-------------------------------------------------------- Follow my blog at: The HappyEdugator.----------------------------------------------

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to make everyday an unforgettable day! I make every effort to appeal to a variety of learning styles, so that students can stay focused and engaged in learning. Children should walk away from my classroom with a love for reading and a hunger for learning something new everyday.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Kappa Delta Pi International Education Honor Society, Golden Key Honor Society, Teacher of the Year 1999-2000, Teacher Support Specialist, 2010 VFW Teacher of the Year for the State of Georgia

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Although I have many students, I have two children of my own. My daughter is now 33, had my sweet grandson in August 2014. She is currently working as a chef at a fine restaurant in Seattle. My son is 32 and is currently working as a CNC programmer, and also lives in Seattle. I am enjoying being the grandmother of his sweet little boy, too, who will be starting Kindergarten in 2016! I am a little sad they are so far away from me, but I get to visit about once a year. My husband and I love the outdoors, especially camping, fishing, and going to the springs or the beach. We have two dogs: a lab/chow mix and a border collie/dachshund mix, who are both spoiled rotten. We plan on retiring in Florida and traveling during the hot summer months.
