TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught grades 2-5, and elementary art for grades k-6 in private and public schools, inner city and suburban settings. I have been a public school teacher for 28 years, focusing on grades 2-5. I am a recently retired 4th grade teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style encourages leadership in my students. My classroom is run in the style of "Mini-Society", with students playing a major role in decision making and assuming responsibility for their own learning. I enjoy combining art with all subjects whenever possible. I am so excited right now about introducing Maker Space resources to the elementary classroom!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was the Farmington Public Schools Elementary Teacher of the Year in 1998, and also the WDIV/Newsweek Oakland County, Michigan's Elementary Educator of the Year in 1998. In 1999, I was a nominee for the Disney Teaching Awards. I was selected as The Great Lake Scholars Teacher of the Year in 2008. This honor is awarded to one teacher fom the Great Lakes Region including Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. I have been trained as an INTEL Teach to the Future teacher trainer, and have been a frequent presenter at Michigan Reading Association and Michigan Association of Computer Users in Learning conferences. I was also a member of the first cohort group in the Galileo Leadership Academy of Michigan. I also trained as a Science Leader in my district, preparing to roll out the NGSS to teachers.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned both BA and MAT degrees from the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.
