TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching and presenting teacher workshops for the past 28 years. In that time I’ve taught all grades from K to 5th and written 16 teacher activity books including activities for reading, writing, language arts, math, differentiated instruction, RTI, brain based learning, and more recently the Common Core State Standards. I love creating new hands-on activities for teachers to make learning fun.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is hands-on and includes brain based learning strategies.
