TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was fortunate to have taught elementary students in public school for 25 amazing years! For four years, I also taught school groups of all ages for the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation - onsite at Jamestown Settlement and at the Yorktown Victory Center and in outreach programs to schools. As a newly retired educator, I am back in the elementary classroom and library as a substitute teacher doing what I love - enjoying learning with young people!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching across the curriculum has a strong impact on making learning connections for the students and their teacher! Using an inquiry based approach whenever possible provides a deeper understanding and opportunity for student involvement through the learning opportunities that are provided. Along with impromptu original songs and rhymes and drawing, these are the methods that I enjoyed using most in the classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was selected and participated in the Library of Congress's Summer Teachers Institute in Washington, DC which focused on the use of primary sources to deepen student learning. I have been a nominee for the school division's Teacher of the Year award but treasure as my greatest honor the many students that have stayed in contact with me or approached me over time to share the positive impact of their year of learning that we had together in second grade.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia with a BA in Elementary Education. Since that time I have completed graduate work at William & Mary, the University of Virginia, and George Mason University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a mom of two young adults, have a wonderfully supportive husband, and am grand mom to a busy rescue pup dog!
