I have been teaching for 19 years. I have taught everything from 3rd to 8th grade.
I am a teacher of the whole child - head, heart, and hands. I like structures and routines because I believe it makes my students feel secure and gives me the freedom to listen to their individual needs. My ideal style is modeling, working together as a class, working in small groups, and finally working independently.
Top test scores in achievement and growth.
I graduated from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
I am married with two children and an Australian Shepherd named Elway. My daughter is a freshman in college and my son is a new teacher.
