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.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Early Childhood/Generalist valid 1998-2008 Smart Exemplary Educator (2009); Superintendent's Award for Exemplary Service to Education (1999); National Board Certified Teacher (1998); Ohio Governor's Educational Leadership Award (1998); listed in Who's Who Among America's Educators (1998 and 2002); Chardon High School Topper Club Honored Educator (1996 and 2001)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master of Education in Early Childhood from Kent State University Bachelor of Arts Degree from Lake Erie College (concentration in elementary education) In addition, over 30 semester hours of graduate coursework earned with additional workshops attended in the areas of technology, mathematics, and reading instruction.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live about 30 minutes East of Cleveland, Ohio. I'm lucky enough to live right on Lake Erie and I enjoy the view year round. I have two cats, Maggie and Boots. I enjoy exploring the internet, reading, and cooking.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
