I have spent over 20 years in the classroom, teaching mostly in the intermediate grades. Subjects include Math, Language Arts (Reading, Grammar, Spelling, and Writing), and Social Studies.
I approach my students with open mind and heart. Lessons are differentiated and often exploratory for optimal student learning.
