I am a veteran elementary school teacher of almost 30 years, a teacher-author on TpT since 2013, and a children's book blogger.
I don't subscribe to any one specific educational philosophy, however, much of what I do is modeled after Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences and Vivian Paley's model of play as a means of social interaction and intellectual growth.
Nominated twice for Teacher of the Year
I have been teaching in some way, shape, or form since 1993. I hold Bachelor of Art degrees in English and elementary education and a Master of New Professional Studies degree in Education. I currently live in Western New York and am enjoying a well-earned sabbatical.
