TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a little bit of everything in education for the past 30 years. I taught elementary students in my own classroom, substituted for grades K-8, taught enrichment summer school for grades K-6 in ELA and Social Studies as well as adult ELA classes. For the past 17 years, I have co-owned Histories for Kids with my husband Terry to bring historical portrayal and storytelling to students of all ages.
