TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been a teacher since 1977, in public and private schools, in third through eighth grades, in California, Colorado, New York, and Washington. Since 1983 I have taught in gifted classrooms, starting in pull-out models. In North Kitsap I began with a 5/6 self-contained class, then moved to 6/7 English/social studies block classes, and now I'm back to elementary school, teaching a self-contained fifth grade class.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Using lots of strategies from Project GLAD, I regularly differentiate and integrate curriculum. I set really high standards, but I have a lot of fun.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a National Board Certified Teacher. I am also on the Executive Board of the Washington Association of Educators of Talented and Gifted (WAETAG). I was recently named an Outstanding Educator by the Alpha Sigma Chapter, Kitsap County, of the Delta Kappa Gamma International Society for Key Women Educators

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Los Gatos High School, Los Gatos, CA. I got my BA from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA. I got my MA from San Jose State in San Jose, CA.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I also teach teachers, through writing science and social studies curriculum units for our district, resource books for teachers, and educational articles; through presenting at national and state science, social studies, and gifted conferences; and through in-service training, both within my district and as a consultant through other districts and my educational service district (ESD). Many of the things I have written, and many of the materials I have developed for my own classroom use are available for free off my website, kragen.net.

Teachers Pay Teachers

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
