TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 17th year of teaching and I still love it! This is my second career--my husband and I still make and sell educational puzzles for kids.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have to admit--I'm a little bit crazy! It's 8th grade, and Rule Number 1 is "Keep Them Awake"! We play lots of games, sing crazy songs they love to hate, and work our tails off! I'm also very much about Project Based Learning where kids are self-directed and fully engaged with their projects. If I'm working harder than they are, something's wrong!
