After nearly 20 years in the classroom, I decided to put all that experience in a book to help parents and kids have wonderful, awesome, successful, and thrilling middle school experiences every day! It can be done! I've taught at five different schools including three different middle schools. Now, I continue to teach through my book, public presentations, and blogging. I'm in the process of creating workbooks, mini booklets, and training guides for parents.
I believed that all children could learn and it was my job to deliver lessons in as many ways as possible to address all the learning styles. I saw my students NOT as brains on sticks just taking tests, but as HUMAN BEINGS. I incorporated life discussions into my ELA and reading classes.
