K-7 classroom and library. I'm also an author. (I have 8 books in the Scholastic series "Literacy Place for the Early Years," including the big book, "Pirate Lee.") I also write screenplays and have ventured into filmmaking as a writer/director.
Great learning activities allow kids to sink their teeth in, provide stress free practice, and opportunities to create both on their own, and with their classmates.
Filmmaking awards for my short film, "The Mary Contest" include Best Young Actress for Adanna Avon -Young Actors Awards. Screenplay awards include finalist for the screenplay, "Man Pillow" Slamdance
I have been teaching for about 25 years in grades K - 7 and as a teacher-librarian. I've enjoyed giving workshops on writing to colleagues in my school district. I've taken a number of writing classes over the past few years including writing for children and screenwriting classes. I've also taken courses/workshops in filmmaking-camera techniques, film production, stop motion animation, etc.
