I have taught for 32 years in Virginia. I am currently a Title I teacher working in Reading remediation, grades 1-3 in Chesapeake VA.
I believe in a very hands on approach to teaching. Working with weaker students, I am constantly trying to come up with creative activities that will keep my students interested and willing to work to their fullest potential.

Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-4, Master's Degree in Reading K-12
I have been married for 31 years and have two wonderful children. Both grown and homeowners. Their rooms have been dismantled and made into a craft room and an office. So I am seriously hoping they will NEVER come back to live. But if they do I would take them in with open arms.
