TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love creating resources for the primary classroom! I recently retired from teaching first grade after 31 years but I don't feel "done" yet. Teachers Pay Teachers gives me a way to combine my teaching experience and knowledge of curriculum with my skills in using software to create materials for educational use. I also teach graduate-level professional development seminars related to technology, including using Smart Boards, to pre-K to grade 12 educators. Check out my website with links and resources to support teachers using technology in the classroom: http://smartertechteaching.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

I absolutely love integrating technology into my teaching. I couldn't teach without a Smart Board. I used one in my first grade classroom for about ten years prior to my retirement.
