Elementary 5th grade teacher for 17 years, Assistant Principal 5 years & 3 years as principal.
I am a data based educator that relies on student's learning styles, strengths and weaknesses to guide my instructional style. I believe that learning should be fun and that it is our job to provide all students with a rich variety of experiences to engage them in real learning. Hands-on, project-based, investigational learning projects are my favorite!
