I have taught for 32 incredible years. Throughout that time I have seen many "pendulum swings" in education. Curriculum buzzwords have come and gone, but there remains one constant: Children love to learn if they can learn what they love.
I have always enjoyed keeping learning fun and exciting. Children love science, especially anything to do with animals. I like to use songs and movement, as they encourage learning and retention.
Yet to be added
I grew up and attended school in Southern California until I transferred to Chico State to work on my teaching credential.
I am married (almost 30 years) to Mark and we are the proud parents of AJ and Lisa. We live in Northern California where we enjoy the beautiful outdoors, fishing, hunting, hiking, biking and going for long walks in our beautiful Bidwell Park.
