TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Ms. Eldering is an award winning author. Her stories "Train of Clues", "The Proposal", "Tulip Kiss", "Butterfly Halves", and "Zombies Amuck" have placed in a variety of contests. Her story "Bride-and-Seek" was selected for the South Carolina Writers' Workshop (SCWW) anthology, the Petigru Review. Her story "Train of Clues" is the predecessor to the Junior Geography Detective Squad, 50-state, mystery, trivia series. Ms. Eldering makes her home in upper state South Carolina and loves to travel, read, cross stitch and crochet. When she's not busy working her full-time job as a medical transcriptionist or participating in virtual classroom visits, she can be found at various homeschool or book events. Working with the sixth grade class via the internet, Ms. Eldering has been given license to teach the point-of-view lessons, incorporating the fractured fairy tales. She has also done several writing workshops on writing at various homeschool conferences and school librarian conferences. Each state book is written like a handheld game that gives the kids clues which are facts and trivia about the state. The reader is encouraged to guess the state along with the characters. Each book has a supplemental study guide that is book-specific and not just based on the clues. The study guides make the books cross-curriculum as there are discussion questions and/or research projects; some science, some math, some arts, and a trivia game based on the book.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Ms. Eldering has won first, second and runner up on several short stories submitted to different contests. Most of her short stories can be found online as ebooks with more coming as soon as cover art can be obtained.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Ms. Eldering has an AS in medical secretary with a minor in word processing and a certification in Electronic Health Records and Patient Billing.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Study guides are included in the ebook files since they are book specific. The study guides allow the teacher or parent to take the story cross-curriculum with the addition of research and discussion questions and/or science/math/art activities all based on clues in the book along with a trivia type game that covers elements of the complete book not just the clues.
