TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 35 years of experience teaching in 1st through 4th grade classrooms and as the school librarian to grades Pre-K through 5th grades. After retiring to care for elderly parents, I now enjoy supporting the classrooms of my own teacher-children.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Although I am now retired, my goal as a librarian was to create an atmosphere in the library that welcomed students and teachers for quiet browsing, researching, reading, studying and just absorbing the love of books. Once all felt comfortable in the space, my goal was to introduce literature and match every single student with something that would interest them and where they would find success.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

While I was often 'appreciated' by my supervisors and coworkers, my true joy came from seeing all kinds of students become lifelong learners and lovers of literature.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelors degree in elementary education, a masters degree in curriculum and instruction and a library certification for Pre-K-12 school libraries.
