TEACHING EXPERIENCE

It has been my great pleasure to spend my entire career at Freeburg Elementary School in Freeburg, Illinois. I began at the pre-school in 1982, moved to the grade school in 1988 and have been there ever since. I've taught first, second, and third grade. I also teach in the Education Division at McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois and I teach Reading and Children's Literature at Southerwestern Illinois College in Belleville, Illinois.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I enjoy engaging, student centered lessons that allow me to learn right along with my students. I try to create a balanced literacy program and prefer student made projects to communicate learning rather than worksheets.
