I am retired after 35 years working with young children. I have taught kindergarten and first grade. Most of my experience has been in kindergarten.
My teaching style is eclectic. I believe that young children learn best when they take an active role in their learning. I strongly believe in developmentally appropriate activities for young children.
I was awarded a grant from the Interface Environmental Education Foundation in 2010 for my project Where the Wild Things Are.
BA in Early Childhood Education, M. Ed. In Early Childhood Education, Ed. S. in Early Childhood Education
I am married and have an adult son. My late mother was a retired teacher with 37 years of service. One of my brothers and two of my sisters-in-law are teachers. My husband and I like to travel. We have visited most of the lower 48 states with our camper.
