TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 27 years and graduated with an M.Ed. in Elementary and Middle Grades Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Florida with honors. I have taught multiple subject areas and many grade levels from Pre K- 8th grade. I have just left teaching middle school for 16 of those years and am back in Elementary in First Grade! So excited to be back with the little people again! :) 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. 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 left teaching and now spend my time making resources to help students and teachers succeed. I also volunteer in my grandson's Kindergarten classroom and work as lead teacher for summer activities at a Christian private school. I still attend conferences and workshops to stay current. 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

M.Ed., Graduated with honors from the University of Florida. 26 years of teaching experience.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Although I have many students, I have two children of my own. My daughter is now 34, had my sweet grandson in August 2014. She is currently working as a chef at a fine restaurant in Seattle, and about to open her own restaurant. My son is 33 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 1st grade in 2017! I no longer am sad they are so far away from me, because I have just recently relocated from Georgia to Seattle to be close by them, and now will be teaching in a new state, a new school, and a new grade level. Grade 1! 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 someday in Florida and traveling during the hot summer months.
