I have 22 years of teaching experience at all levels. The majority has been spent teaching early elementary.
I enjoy using hands-on learning with unit studies and interactive notebooks/lapbooks. I think it's important for students to use content-rich materials to complete research-type activities to create memorable keepsakes. This is why I love interactive notebooks and notebooking pages - they are definitely keepers!

My husband, Allen, and I have six grown kids - three boys and three girls. We've been married for 29 years and have lived on the same 12 acres for the past 20 years. We have an orchard, where we grow several different varieties of dates and lots of other fruit trees. Besides raising children, we have also raised chickens, goats, tilapia, pigs and a bunch of other fun farm animals. We are hard-core homesteaders! We love being self-sufficient.
