TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 25 years and during that time have taught 1-8th grade self contained, English, Social Studies, ESL, and math (my favorite). Most of those years have been in Texas except for 2 years in Portugal.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to teach in ways that get the kids up and out of their seats and having fun. I try to think of ways to make some of the abstract mathematical ideas more down to earth for the kids so that they can understand them better.
