TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started teaching when I was 5-years-old playing school. I was positive by 3rd grade that I wanted to be a teacher. I launched my career in Wisconsin in 1976, teaching high school English, a month after I graduated, and “officially retired” from teaching elementary in Michigan public schools in 2009. Still passionate, I threw my hat in the cyber-ring with a teacher blog and website, as well as teaching English at Grand Rapids Community College. Doing workshops and presenting at conferences, rounds out my bag of tricks.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is high-energy, creative, innovative, and hands-on. When people ask me what I do for a living, I say I’m a multi-tasking "edu-tainer".

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My shining teacher moments: Elementary: When the light bulbs go on and my students are over the moon with excitement. High school: My students often groaned when the bell rang, because they didn’t want to leave. College: Bringing diversified, multi-age levels and ethnicities together, to truly make a difference. I’ve been a freelance writer for Mailbox Magazine and an editor for Gift & Decorative Accessories Magazine, as well as designed teacher-themed giftware for Russ Berrie and Wangs International.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from college with a BA in English-Secondary Education from The University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire; did graduate work at the University of Wisconsin, Madison; received an Elementary Endorsement from Grand Valley State University in Michigan, where I also received my Masters in Elementary Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I enjoy nature, crafts, hiking and spending time with my husband and our 6-adult children and 5 grandchildren. I’m passionate about sharing God’s gifts on my blog: http://www.teachwithme.com/blogs/getting-to-the-core and teacher website: http://www.teachwithme.com/ I'm thrilled to have a shop on TpT to hopefully make a little something to help with the bills.
