I've been teaching for over 28 years and have taught grades PreK-6th grade, as well as P.E., Art, Music, and Instructional Coaching at some point in my career. I've taught in both private and public schools. I've also taught staff development courses on Teaching Strategies, Depth of Knowledge, ADHD, Common Core State Standards,Curriculum, Data, and more.
