My background includes twenty-five years of teaching in the elementary grades. I also taught beginning Spanish to grades K-4. In addition I have written over 200 education articles.
Learning happens in a classroom with a comfortable yet respectful environment. My style is to make learning fun with games, movement and total student involvement whenever possible. The goal is to have students WANT to come to school. I tell my students that everyone, even me, should learn something new everyday.
