TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching elementary students can be a most amazing experience. As a third-generation teacher, I taught in mostly blended classrooms for 25 years. Then I became a talented and gifted specialist working with students, parents, and teachers to provide a supportive environment in the general classroom. Now, I'm a very active volunteer helping classroom teachers implement math and science challenges to support all the students in each classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Active, hands-on, student centered, fun.
