TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over 20 years in training and education including, most recently, 8 years teaching Career and Technology Education (CTE) for 7th and 8th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal is that my students have fun while learning valuable life skills. I design lessons that help them be independent, life-long learners. Students take ownership in their learning as they create their own questions and are motivated to assist in finding their own answers!
