TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As an Enrichment Specialist, I have worked in both elementary schools and preschools, as well as in museums developing & designing educational learning centers, materials and labs. TRW sent me around the country training teachers how to integrate Science, Art and Math/Music (S.A.M.) into everyday activities. I have discovered that successful adults found their vocational interest at age seven or around there. We need to get science into our 7 year olds, so "kiss your brains" if you are exciting them already, it is the most important job we have today.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I base my learning centers and materials around "stuff' (stimulating tools useful for fun and fundementals). Children love doing art, it is the one personal experience that helps develop creative and critcal thinking skills. Most of my science projects include art activities that promote developing many skills. My motto is that science should be job-related, math- practical application and art needs to always be process oriented as well as skill developers. Dressing the part also adds my personality and grabs kids attention. Visit my website www.pennnirubin.com or follow me on Facebook.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Award for the design of Music: "Out Of The Ordinary" exhibit on sound theory for the Cleveland Children's Museum. I have recreated it for many of my WONDERlabs for recreation centers and schools. I also developed four educational parties for the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and co-authored the book "What's Under Your Feet?" for the U.S. Geological Survey.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Being dyslexic made me more aware of better ways to teach young children as I did not know that I had this learning disability while growing up. I am working on a new book entitled "She Fooled Everyone But Herself" about it. For 35 years I have performed and created hands-on learning acitivites so children can understand and think things through learning in their own way. Assoc. Degree in Early Childhood Education, Tri-C College and gradutaed from Capital University as an Enrichment Specialist. I have now developed Suitcase Science and go into classrooms with my bags of goodies and hide the learning in the fun! My latest "PLANTS: part, present and future" was so well received in my grand daughters fourth grade class that I want to publish it.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

BOOKS: The Mommy I Have Nothing to Do Book, Math in Motion, What's Under Your Feet? (U.S. Geological Survey), and many others. I have written 100 songs and on my "Crazy Daze" CD, there are 16 original wiggle and giggle educational songs, including "Pack A Snack" which is a memory game that goes through the alphabet in foods. My play, "At Seven The Musical", is about finding our vocational interests early in life. My latest project is a book "Why Is The Sky Blue?" (on cloud identification) with a poem I wrote and nearly 100 photos of sunsets that I have taken around the world in my travels. Speaking of which, I had a chance to ride an elephant, be kissed by an orangatan, touch a gray whale in Baja, and swim with dolphins in Mexico.
