My experience with teaching includes K-12 in subjects Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Literature, Visual Arts, and Reading. I have more experience in Middle Grades 6-8 than any other age group and especially with gifted students. I have taught grade 5, all subjects, grades 11-12 in Literature, grades K-12 in Visual Arts!
My style of teaching is very creative because of my artistic nature. I like to show students how everything is connected and often put together thematic units that rely of all academic areas to tie it all together. I think the students get a "big picture" that way. I like to give students a visual learning experience and often use technology to accomplish this. My classrooms are often very active learning environments with students moving and talking to one another about the projects. When it is time for individual work, they all sit down and attend to their own assignments!

I am currently home-schooling my daughter and working for a publishing company. I have tons of lesson plans in boxes that need to be used! If you need a lesson and you can't think of a way to put it together, I'll work on that for you so that you can attend to the class work!
