TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twenty years of teaching!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on and interactive, fast-paced and keeping students reaching up, building on students' strengths while supporting students in the activities that frustrate, encouraging exploration and building a framework for independence...

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the year, various literacy awards and honors, free dinners and handshakes...

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

As an undergraduate, I was interested in philosophy and religion, why we are here and just what we should or could be doing. As a professional, I became interested in the minds of the Gifted, and I feel as though I've just begun...

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

At midpoint in life, I've enjoyed a variety of activities outside of education, boogie-boarding at the beach, snowboarding in the mountains, rock-climbing, hiking to the top of local mountains, bungee-jumping, parachuting, kayaking, biking, and so much more, all teaching me that life is lived!
