TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a 20+ year veteran of teaching! My experience has led me to teach students in rural to urban schools and loved every minute! From teaching kids to teaching adults to mentoring teachers (and some administrators), it is a blessing to help move to learn forward! I love my career!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is mentoring and facilitating type styles meshed together and sprinkled with an abundance of teaching styles. I'd like to thank all the educators who made me what I am today - a strong teacher!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year nominee - 2 years in a row. PLTW Community Award

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I began my education after I raised my girls. Actually, I worked at home as a medical transcriptionist because I loved the language. But working your own business can be feast or famine. In famine weeks I decided to substitute teach. At that point in time, I fell in love with teaching! I began my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and continued with certification into Educational Leadership. I guess you could say I love learning!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband, Chris, and I have 2 gorgeous daughters who have given us 4 beautiful grandchildren! Chris and I live in Indiana with our 2 cats, Kahlua and Tigger. They are fun kitties!
