12 years at Benton Harbor Area Schools, Benton Harbor, MI; taught 7th and 8th grade math; taught all subjects to 4th, 5th, & 6th graders in a self-contained Montessori classroom that later developed into three team-teachers teaching in a departmentalized fashion with my responsibilities being science (using Scott Foresman texts) for all three grade levels and social studies (using Harcourt Horizons: United States History text) for 5th grade; I have a middle school math endorsement (math and science are my passion!); continued to increase student MEAP scores in science; participated on curriculum writing for the district for many years; participated on Science Olympiad comities including student participation and school event......are we to give a resume here??? :)
varies for the student - some need repetition; some need individual attention; some just take off on their own and only need guidance; I hope to encourage life-long learners who try to find the answers for themselves...

Became a stay-at-home mom with the birth of my third child - she is now finishing second grade; my oldest is going into 8th grade; and middle is going into 6th grade; I wanted and needed to be home to support their educational journey, but I can't shake the teacher in me...so I hope I can provide some useful tools that I have used over the years for others; please let me know if there is anything in particular that I can supply and I will see what I can do :)
