TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love teaching upper grade students! I've taught mostly grades 4/5 and blended classes plus 6th grade, middle school math, 1st grade, high school at-risk computers, and served as our district's K-12 Academic Achievement Specialist.

I'm now retired from 34 years teaching in public schools and am passionate about helping make other teachers' jobs easier by sharing what worked for me. I taught blends with large class sizes of 30+ students, so the independent projects and activities I developed got students focused and gave me time to teach curriculum to students in the other grade level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I give students choices using projects, activities, and hands-on materials and integrate technology everywhere possible to get the highest results.

Students rise to our expectations, so teach each child as if he or she is gifted and talented and be surprised at what they do!

Students should not have to ask, "When are we ever going to use this?" because teaching with real life applications, they will KNOW.
