I have taught for 24 years at the elementary and secondary levels. Currently, I'm the District Testing and Data Coordinator and Instructional Coach for Grades 4th and 5th.
I'm a life-long learner. I think I have a natural gifting for teaching, too. My passion in life is to break down concepts into small bits of information so that students can learn the concepts. I also like synthesizing large amounts of information in a way that is easy for learning.

My first experience in the public education system was in a rural two-room school house. I knew I wanted to be a teacher at a very young age.
I've been married for 40 years. I have three grown children and five beautiful grandchildren.
