11 years Classroom Teacher grades K-3 16 years Teacher-Librarian grades K-6 27 years Curriculum Creator/Designer
All of my lessons that are for sell, I have used with my own students. I develop the lessons and teach them to insure they are practical and successful. I am a Love and Logic teacher. The keywords for my teaching style are flexibility, hands on, differentiation, and joy. My library is not the silent kind. I believe learning should be an active, collaborative, challenging and adaptive.
