TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 30+ years! This includes the regular classroom and a specialist position. Grades I have taught:

  • Grades 3, 4, and 5
  • Grades 1-2 STEM
  • Grades 3-5 STEM

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think we learn best by trying something and learning from mistakes.

  • Hands-On
  • No Fear of Failure
  • Learn by Doing

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

A shining moment in my teaching career was moving from a third-grade classroom (after 20 years) to the STEM Lab. I loved third grade but the adventure of a STEM Lab has been terrific! Over 30 years in education now!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Masters Degree in Elementary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

"If anyone ever tells you your dreams are silly, just remember there is a millionaire walking around who invented the pool noodle". And he probably would have been an excellent student in a STEM Lab!
