I've taught for 32 years and am double certified in Regular Education and Speical Education. This year I've been working as an Early Intervention Specialist for Math and Reading in Grades 5, 1, and Kindergarten as well as a Special Education Teacher for 5th graders in Reading and Math. I have worked in both regular education and special education including grades 1-8. I am a Smart Board Exemplary Educator and LOVE teaching children and adults how to use the Smart Board for exciting teaching and learning! I am also a Teacher Support Specialist. Should you or your school need some help learning all you can about Smart Boards, please contact me. I live and breathe it as do the teachers and students I've instructed.
My teaching style is totally flexible. I've taught in five states and so many different situations,it has to be! I've never approached a position that I didn't find something I loved about it. Bringing Smart Board to the classroom, however, is proving to be the most rewarding experience of all.
I've been nominated in three different school districts for Teacher of the Year. I am a Smart Board Exemplary Educator. My students three years ago, in a regular classroom setting achieved the highest math scores in the district. This past year, I taught special education and had two students pass the CRCT that had never passed it before.
I'm double certified from Lamar University in Texas in Special Education and Regular Education. I'm a Teacher Support Specialist as well. I am also a Smart Board Exemplary Educator.
I retired early due to illness but am now doing fine. I'd like to use what I know to help other teacher's through TPT. I have two adult children, two adult step-children and am totally blessed with six wonderful grandchildren!!!! I'm married to my life long friend who tolerates my dedication to my career lovingly.
