TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My 20-plus years of teaching included 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades in Colorado, California, New Jersey, and Illinois. I've recently retired and now find myself as busy as ever! While I taught I loved creating meaningful and stimulating worksheets for my students, especially literature packets...but finding the time for it was always a challenge. Now I can spend a significant amount of time creating and publishing to help other teachers who are too busy teaching 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.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My teaching awards have been the thank yous, hugs, and lasting friendships of the students and parents that I have had over the years!

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. My husband, Jeff, and I live in the Rocky Mountains where we enjoy golf, cross country skiing, long walks, magnificent views, and reading. I am involved with raising funds for non-profits through my church community as well as P.E.O., a national organization that provides scholarships for women in need.
