The first 15 years of my teaching career were spent as a Learning Disabilities teacher, servicing children in grades K-3 in a self-contained classroom. After that, I taught all-day kindergarten for 13 years, followed by teaching preschool for six years. I am currently enjoying retirement, and looking forward to building my TPT store.
No matter what grade I was teaching, I always tried to create a warm, nonthreatening environment, where children felt safe and welcome. Students were always encouraged to do their personal best.
Every time parents requested that their child be assigned to my class it was an honor!
Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Purdue University Calumet, along with endorsements in Learning Disabilities, Emotionally Handicapped, and Reading.
