During my 35 years as an educator I taught grades 1,2,3, 5, 6,7, and 8. Although I loved being in the classroom, there were new education avenues to try. I worked as an Instructional Coach for three years, and I currently work part time as a Reading and Math teacher for students in grades 2-6. During the summer I developed Common Core vocabulary activities targeted for math, science, social studies and language arts using Marzano's vocabulary list.
Creative yet focused on core content and always using interactive white board activities for student engagement.
I was selected to be a teacher lead during the summer of 2010 for Science in the state of Ohio

I love being a mom, walking my dog(s) traveling, entertaining friends, photography, gardening, and knitting.
