My true loves in life are teaching, art and science. I have over 25 years of teaching experience in public and private schools, from preschool to high school. The last 18 years of my teaching career have been spent at the elementary level, teaching and offering professional development. I love developing and implementing creative teaching ideas that can easily be differentiated for every child in your classroom.
Hands on, differentiated learning to accommodate all learning styles and abilities.
Seeing a child begin to read, write and spell always brings me to tears. There is no greater reward.
