Ten year's experience at the elementary school level.
I employ a constructivist, hands-on, inquiry learning design in my classroom instruction and lesson design. Here at Teachers Pay Teachers, I am sharing the lessons and materials that I have developed and created over my teaching career.

I love teaching and enjoy creating my own materials. Outside the classroom, I am a self-directed learner. I have taught myself and my students how to crochet and geocache. I am a lifelong learner, and I try to instill a love of learning within my students.
