I have been teaching for more than25 years and I still go to bed and wake up thinking of fun ways to motivate my students! I started my student teaching in Kindergarten and 3rd grade, and then went on to teach 1st, 2nd and 4th. I have taught 2nd grade the longest, but I have loved all the grades I have taught.
I love hands-on learning, with time to share, move and create. I, like my young students, like to see the big picture and global ideas, so I believe in a thematic, integrated teaching approach.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelor of Science degree, with endorsements in Kindergarten, Reading and ESL. I also have a Master's in Mid-Management.
I am the mother of two wonderful girls and have been married for 30 years!
