ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Motivating students has been a fulfilling practice in my 20+ years in public education. My materials are particularly helpful with at-risk populations. I've written all my materials to be of high educational value while allowing students more creative choice. It feels great to hear students say, "This is fun"! Everyone learns, and classroom management issues are drastically reduced. I know you'll enjoy my products as well.
