I have taught grades 1- 7 for over 28 years. During my last 20 years I have worked in the area of middle school gifted education.
I have mainly taught ELA. When teaching reading or literature, I tried to expose students to both fiction and non-fiction and to various genre. Though I used a variety of teaching styles, class discussion of the reading material was a major component of our studies. The main focus of my language program was writing of every type. The types of writing were modeled and students were taught to use the complete writing process.
I was a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of ELA.
BA in Elmentary Education; Masters in Guidance and Counseling; Certification in Gifted.
