TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 22 years in the upper elementary and middle school levels.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think students should love to come to school and learn. I like to help my students learn the curriculum in a way that appeals to them. I also want my students to be able to interact with the curriculum. Many of my activities are for use in centers or small group, but can easily stand alone.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have receive the Hall of Fame award along with the Horizon Teaching Award in my school district.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelors Degree in Education with a minor in Biology in 1993. I received my ESL endorsement in 2000. I earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2004.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a fabulous hubby and 5 wonderful kids, 2 boys and 3 girls. We all love living and learning by the lake. We also like a game or two of soccer, football, or basketball.
