TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught all levels in elementary education for 35 years and instructional technology for 6 years. I started out teaching in Florida, moved to Washington State, and taught in the same district in California for my last 36 years. After retiring ten years ago, I did some consulting and taught educational technology classes for the Orange County Department of Education. I volunteer at my local elementary school and continue to make educational materials for friends in my old district and help them with writing grants.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I always believed in a student-centered classroom with lots of cooperative learning. I started using computers in the classroom about 1977 and never looked back. Technology became one of my strongest teaching tools.

B.A. In Social Science and Elementary Education from the University of Washington

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In the late 1960s there was a teacher shortage, and a small elementary school district sent recruiters out across the country to lure teachers to a town in sunny Southern California where they built eleven schools in just a few years. I joined a fabulous community where almost everyone was a brand new teacher, and we learned how to teach together. Back then the universities did not prepare you as well as they do today. We were able to start our careers back when having fun was an important part of the curriculum. Yes, we assessed regularly, but we didn't have the stress that testing places on the modern day classroom. We partied together in the seventies and retired together in the 21st century. We all have a lot of empathy for those of you teaching today. However, you are very fortunate to have a site like TeachersPay Teachers! We shared lesson plans across our district, and you are able to share globally.
