I have twenty-nine years experience in the education field: two years as a middle school language arts instructor, ten years as a middle school reading interventionist, five years as a high school English and history teacher, ten years as a Family Literacy coordinator (adult education, early childhood education, parent education and parent/child time), two years as an English and history teacher for grades 5-12 at a Christian school, and last but certainly not least I have taught Bible lessons to all ages throughout my lifetime.
My teaching style is student-centered differentiation instruction, with emphasis on setting individual goals and celebrating successes. I believe all learning experiences should be meaningful and student driven.
Honor I am most proud of: National Finalist for the "Toyota Family Literacy Teacher of the Year"
