TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an Instructional Technology Coach. I collaborate with teachers to provide appropriate learning experiences that increase the technology knowledge and skills of students. I also oversee the teaching of K - 5 students in the computer lab. ******* Previously, I taught 5th grade (all subjects) for 8 years. Additionally, I taught math or language arts to 4th or 5th graders during summer school each year. ******* Prior to that, I was a U.S. Navy Laboratory Officer. Over my 22 year career, I directed/trained over 900 young adults in laboratory medicine and military duties and responsibilities.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Kids learn through play without even knowing it. I believe in plenty of opportunity for experimentation, use of manipulatives, and lots of hands-on experiences.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching is my second career. I spent 22 years as a Laboratory Officer in the U.S. Navy. Before my retirement, I went back to school for my Master's in Education. When I started teaching, I was struck by the lack of hands-on teaching material for science. This led to the creation of the card games you see here.
