I have been a general classroom teacher in all grades PreK-6 for over 30 years. Currently I am a national seminar presenter. Here is a link to my presenting schedule.
In my classroom all students are empowered with success and challenge. I believe in less worksheets and more differentiated lessons, projects, games and hands-on learning!
I have been teacher of the year several times in my school district.
Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Utah State University Masters degree in Education from University of Utah
I have retired from the general classroom, but I am busier than ever traveling to across the country sharing practical and research based teaching ideas on how to differentiate instruction in reading, writing and math. My goal is to provide success and challenge to ALL students! Follow me for ideas, inspiration and freebies! Pinterest My Blog Facebook
