My 15 year teaching career was spent mostly as a music and Special Education Teacher in elementary, middle schools and high schools in Toronto, Canada. During this time I was always devising little musical ways of helping to boost my students' literacy and numeracy skills. In 1990 I began formally publishing my work. I'm excited about sharing what I've created here, on Teachers Pay Teachers. I'm sure that these materials will work with your students! Enjoy them and please stay in touch!
