My experience is as a classroom teacher, a Reading Specialist, a Title I teacher, and as a Curriculum Specialist assisting teachers in diagnosing student academic needs and designing and providing activities to classroom teachers. In addition to many District Professional Development Workshops, I have also taught university classes in teaching gifted students, creative writing and computer skills. I have monitored/reviewed school site plans, parent involvement activities, and Title 1 staff development.
I believe students learn best when they are Engaged in Learning with Creative and Fun Activities that meet individual needs and learning styles. Products in Teaching Stuff Place are motivating, visually appealing, and cover core skills.
