TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For more than twenty years, I've taught elementary school students, starting with those in the upper grades and then moving to those in kindergarten. Along the way, I've presented workshops for teachers and staff and taught courses for adults who wanted to learn to write children's stories and/or for publication. I've also published hundreds of articles, lessons, and short stories, three nonfiction resource books, and seven novels (to date).

MY TEACHING STYLE

One of the best tips I was given as a new teacher was to encourage and help my students become lifelong learners. Later, when I had my own children, I knew that I wanted the children in my life to be thinking and learning until their very last breath. Life is an adventure and I wanted my students to experience that through hands-on activities.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Finalist for the city's Golden Apple Award, six times - an award given by the Chamber of Commerce and local businesses - nominated by students and parents. Awards for writing from the Kansas NEA and various writers' groups.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

We moved several times while I was growing up and so I experienced education in several different states. My favorite and probably most influential was in Florida for middle school and high school, where the teachers provided us with individual learning packets. We progressed at our own pace and yet had to cover a lot of material. My college education includes a degree in business administration and elementary education - a circuitous route that is another story.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Writing and teaching are my favorite passions (after my husband and sons). Whenever I can, I like to teach about writing or write about teaching. My novels often include teachers and schools in them. In addition to writing and teaching, I enjoy traveling, history, and nature.
