All the heart eyes for TEACHING!!! I feel sooooo blessed to have this wonderful calling!!! Over 23 years teaching experience at all elementary grade levels! My husband and I also love our work at church with children and young family ministry.
I love sharing my love of learning, my willingness to take academic risks, and my desire for personal excellence with my students. And in my class we never forget that learning is CAPTIVATING and FUN!!! :-) Planning, preparedness, and research form the solid basis of my instruction, but teaching is definitely an art that requires both creativity and finesse!
