I am currently retired after teaching 33+ years. My areas of concentration were Kindergarten and Preschool. I have had the honor of being Preschool Supervisor, Save the Children Supervisor, Resource Teacher for K-TIP and Student Teachers RIF Coordinator for my school and many extra-curricular positions. I was also the teacher lead for our school's Kindergarten program.
When it comes to teaching, I am "old school". I start by teaching my students the basics. If they do not seem to be catching on, I go on the hunt to find other styles and materials that will help my students. That does not mean I don't challenge those students that need it because I do; it may be hard to teach a Kindergarten 5th & 6th grade work, but I have done it with a lot of help from TPT materials!
The greatest honors/awards that I have received are hugs from my students and thank yous from my parents, however, I feel that these are the best kind! However, I have worked hard during my teaching career and have received several nationally recognized awards and honors: Manchester Who’s Who, Strathmore Who’s Who, Who’s Who Among Teachers, Metropolitan Who’s Who, National Honor Roll’s Outstanding American Teachers, American Teacher’s Panel and she was asked to participate in the US/China Early Childhood Contingency held in Beijing, China. Her ideas/activities have also been published in several teacher resources.
