ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have always considered myself a life-long learner. As the coordinator for three on-site BBBS programs in our county, I provide screening and training of high school mentors for elementary children. As part of their weekly meetings, I provide "stuff to do." I've drawn from my past teaching experiences, and am now providing these educational activities on TpT. Many would be suitable for a variety of situations - "emergency" fillers for substitute teachers and guided practice for one-on-one teaching or mentoring. Please contact me if you have more questions about Big Brothers Big Sisters!
