TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My goal is to create quality materials that enhance learning beyond my classroom walls. By combining my 28 years of elementary experience with my passion for literacy and staff development, I am thrilled to provide resources for teachers and their students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

There is nothing more exciting than seeing the world through the eyes of a second grader. They are so eager to learn new things. Guiding them to new discoveries and providing opportunities to explore the world around them best describes the type of classroom I try to create.
