TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have worked in pre-k through 1st 2nd grade in private, parochial, and Montessori Schools in Florida and Indiana for 9 years, and have taught 3rd grade in Chicago for 15 years. After retiring, I am substitute teaching in all grades, k-12, but am really enjoying middle school and high school!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think teaching and learning should be joyful and creative, full of imagination and integration of subjects. I especially like to use music, poetry, and fine arts in my teaching.
