TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My 33 years in the classroom included K Classroom Teacher, K-2 Math Specialist/ K-2 Math Classroom Teacher (departmentalized) / K-2 Literacy Specialist / SPED I have several years experience developing standards-based learning materials for kindergarten and first grade professionally for a publishing house.

MY TEACHING STYLE

See below....I wrote that when I opened my store 13 years ago. Now I am retired and my hope is to do THIS for YOU! 2008 I wrote, "I love teaching! I so wish someone else could come take care of everything besides working with the kids and creating fun, but meaningful, activities for them. I believe in having high standards for all children and giving them the tools they need to meet learning goals. A child's day should be filled with fun and adventure...even if they spend it in a classroom!"

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I began writing freelance for the Education Center in 2008 and have been contributing several items to each issue of Mailbox Magazine and Teacher's Helper at the kindergarten level. I create printable, games, literacy units, writing activities, etc. I have also contributed to four books published the TEC.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

MSEd Binghamton University BS Mount Saint Mary College

In addition to my teaching and writing career, I am a multimedia artist. I primarily work with watercolors and paint rustic images of leaves, trees and barns. I have recently begun to show work at arts and crafts fairs and have been invited to join (show and sell my work at) a local gallery which will open next season. (A life long dream!)
