I have taught in both regular education and also gifted and talented education. I have worked at a gifted and talented all inclusive school and also at a magnet school and a junior high school. I am now employed by the state to work in an educational cooperative as a science and gifted and talented specialist.
I am a very hands-on, minds-on teacher. Giving students a hands-on experience and then challenging them to think about what they have done and use higher order thinking skills. Students involved in this type of learning environment tends to retain what they learn.
Yet to be added
I have an undergraduate degree from University of Louisiana Monroe where I also obtained my masters. I am a life long learner so I have taken other classes in the area of science and also in supervision and administration. I have an additional 51 hours above my masters in education.
I have working in the area of teaching for 21 years now. I am married with a wonderful husband, twin sons who are in their 30s and I have five grandchildren who are the light of my life.
