TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my teaching career in 1986. I have taught 1st through 8th grades and all subjects. My primary focus has been in mathematics. I was a math major in college, then I decided to minor in math and major in elementary education because my true love was working with younger students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love the challenge of coming up with new ways to teach content! Creating lessons and activities and watching them play out in the classroom has always been one of the most exciting parts of my teaching!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have taught all subjects (even PE!) in grades 1 - 8 in three states: Texas, Hawaii and Washington. I love traveling and meeting new people and learning about new cultures. I think moving and traveling makes us more accepting and understanding of others.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I've been married since 1983 and have three wonderful children!
