I have 38 years working with 2nd graders.
I like to teach in small groups while my students are either doing seat work or centers. We do whole group lessons once in a while.
I was honored to be named Teacher of the Year in my district.
Bachelor of Science from Central Michigan University in 1978 Master of Elementary Education from Western Michigan University in 1983.
I'm a mom to two who are also teachers, and who married teachers. And I married a teacher too!
