TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught ELA and reading to students in grades 6-8 for 25 years. My love for reading and the belief that reading is a lifeline to success gave me an opportunity to develop a curriculum for remedial readers teaching reading strategies, phonics, and the importance of gaining a bigger vocabulary.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Using the corners of my classroom was one way to get students up and moving. Whether I placed numbers, colored squares, letters (or nothing at all) in the corners, it was a quick way for the class to see the diversity of experiences, opinions or even who got the right answer. It also let me know if I needed to spend more time on what we were studying. I found the corners could be a part of just about any lesson.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The spelling program I created for my students, Spelling--An Integrated Approach for Middle School, was recognized with featured articles in the Redford Observer, MEA, and NEA.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a K-12 Reading Specialist and have a Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts in Teaching from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I retired 2016 and realized what I missed most was developing curriculum. I am excited to still be able to contribute to the education of students and be a part of teachers' classrooms!
