TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My 20+ years of teaching focused on the middle grades in Colorado, California, New Jersey, and Illinois. 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.

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 can spend more time with family and watch the hot air balloons float above the Rio Grande and view the Sandia Mtns on a daily basis. Visit my profile on Pinterest. If you enjoy the packets that you've purchased from me, please pin them!
