TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My 20+ years of teaching focused on the middle grades in Colorado, California, New Jersey, and Illinois. I always loved creating meaningful and stimulating worksheets for my students, especially literature packets...but finding the time for doing that was always a challenge. Now that I've retired, I can spend as much time as I like creating and publishing to help all you current teachers who are too busy teaching, correcting, and planning to have time to create as well!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal has always been that my students will feel welcome and safe in my classroom and will leave feeling inspired, energized, and valued.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA. M.Ed. from Queen's University, Ontario, Canada.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I grew up in Southern California: paradise in those days~especially Santa Barbara! I still love beaches and warm sunny skies. I've recently moved to Albuquerque, NM where I enjoy spending time with family, watching the hot air balloons float above the Rio Grande, reading books, and gazing at the wide skies above the Sandia Mountains.
