Thank you for visiting my store! I am a Nationally Board Certified Educator with 22 years experience in public education. Since I began teaching, I've taught High School English, worked as a middle and high school Media Specialist, and currently serve as my school's Technology Instructional Specialist. I am still as passionate about education today as the day I first started! I enjoy creating high-interest curriculum materials for my teachers and utilizing educational technology to enhance both teaching and student learning!
