I have taught for six years in Arizona beginning in 1986. I taught three years of third grade and three years of special education K-6. Then, after moving to Michigan I taught special education at a men's maximum security prison for one year. I then opened a daycare/preschool that I ran for about two years before moving to Utah. In Utah I taught two years of special education, one in middle school, and one at a Jr. High. Following this, I moved back to elementary and taught third grade, a 2nd/3rd split, and fourth grade. This year I have returned to Arizona where I am teaching special education grades K-4..
I like to vary my teaching style based on the students.

I hope to create useable lessons for teachers. In the process, I believe I will receive useful feedback in order to improve these writing skills.
