TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught eleven and half years before staying home to raise my two children. I spent more than half of that time teaching middle grades special ed. I then spent the second half of my time in regular ed kindergarten and first grade. That is where my heart is!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love teaching through hands-on activities and music!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

President of local chapter of the Council for Learning Disabilities. Nominee for Beginning Teacher of the Year

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA in Special Education from Florida Atlantic University and am certified in Special Ed. and Early Childhood Ed. I earned a Masters degree in Counseling and Psychology from Troy State University in 2000.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I started creating learning activities to use in my own classroom and found that it was something I really enjoyed doing. So, I decided to create and sell literacy bags, file folder games and learning centers for other teachers back in 2004. I find it an honor to be able to share my work with teachers and students all around the globe.
