I have been teaching for over 30 years and still enjoying every day. It is a new day for me and my students everyday. My background experience includes counseling in middle school, assistant principal, teaching 5th grade science and science labs for 3-5, computer lab for 2-5 as well as years of experience in grades 1-5.
I am trained in Learning Styles and Reading Styles and I try to always include a variety of learning formats in order to reach all learners. I was trained in New York with the Dunn & Dunn Learning Styles method. The key to successful learning for the child is to match their learning style with your teaching style. Individuality is adaptable for the students as well as the teacher. When your students are successful---you have done your job!
Student Success is the only honor or award I need or want. To see a face light up and the smile that appears a second later---tells me everything I need to know.
I have a degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and certifications in Administrative Mid-Management and Supervision and nine hours away from a counselors certification.
I live in Texas and must admit that I can't imagine living any where else. Proud parent of a daughter and a son. Sad to say that they don't live in Texas, so I don't get to spend as much time with them as I would like.
