I taught both third and fifth grades as a classroom teacher for eight years before earning an art certificate and teaching art for the next twenty years. I am presently working as a reading interventionist in a local public elementary school.
I feel most successful when I can integrate something "artsy" in with my lessons, whether it be drawing, singing, acting or dancing. I think it makes learning more memorable.
Building Teacher of the Year - 2008
Earned my B.S. In Elementary Education from The University of Missouri St. Louis in 1987 and earned a Masters in Teaching from Webster University in 1995. I took additional classes at Webster to gain my art certificate, and several years later obtained my Masters plus 30 credits in education as well.
