All students are created differently. Some are bored, some are struggling, some are off task, etc. But all love games and all thrive on seeing personal success. My goal is to design materials in an engaging format to teach multiple individualized objectives simultaneously. There are numerous variations on lesson plans in each resource. The materials include many suggestions for accommodations and modifications for specific needs. Objectives from both the Virginia Standards of Learning and the Common Core are written out in my products.

I love developing specialized instruction and games that allow players to learn different skills while playing a game together. Let me know if you need something specific. I may be able to help. Since I retired, I have also designed materials for my friend who teaches English as a Second Language.
