TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught since 1978 in both Christian and public schools in my five licensed areas: art, English, elementary 1-8, reading K-12, and my newest area; ESL which is clearly my absolute favorite area! I love my job! I am the only ESL teacher currently in my building so I service all grades K-5.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I will use whatever resource I can find to teach those core standards in the most interesting way that I can. I use my Smart board and occasionally have the kids use computers to do research. If it means team teaching, teaching with centers, using Power Points, small groups, whole group, paired work, one-on-one conferencing, or interactive games on Smart board, I will do it. I am going to find a way because I am a "can do" person or I will find someone to teach me how. Just tell me I can't do something with a child and it's like the biggest dare in the world to me; just watch me go when that happens. I love to do extensions to literature, especially with the Narnia series. In the past, I have taught that series from first grade through fifth grades and it's all GOOD. My children have developed an enjoyment for fantasy and also come to realize that their are life-changing messages in books, too.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

When I taught a homeroom at the second/third grade level, I won Ameritech grants on three occasions for multi-cultural/multi-age/cross-curriculum units for my district here in Ohio. My biggest award or should I say reward, is seeing children learn to read and actually enjoy it.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have attended three universities to become licensed in five areas: Asbury University, The Ohio State University, and Otterbein University. I originally went to Asbury as an art education major with an English minor. While my family was young, I picked away at getting my elementary 1-8 certification from The Ohio State University. Much later after many years of teaching, I got my masters/ reading endorsement in 2008 from Otterbein University. Since I already had credits for many of the TESOL required courses list, I went on to get my ESL endorsement from The Ohio State University in 2010 (some coursework was transferred from Otterbein for which I am very grateful to Ohio State for accepting). My five licensed areas: art, English, elementary 1-8, reading K-12, and my newest area; ESL K-12 which I am extremely happy about!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married and have two grown sons. I love to sing in my church choir, garden, and have a small standard-sized dachshund, named Sammy. In the summer, Sammers and I love to take walks I work on my computer and try to create new and better products to put on TPT. I'm still learning the "computer language" as I like to call it. I didn't grow up with this stuff but I am learning. I've always wanted to write children's picture books and have actually sold a few pieces to magazines. One day you might see my name on a kids book! My new and beautiful store logo was made for me by Laine Sutherland.
