I have been teaching since 1992. I taught first grade for most of those years and have been enjoying teaching third grade for the past few. I also have two children of my own who are middle and high school age.
I believe in using whatever teaching style works!! It's all about finding the right strategy for the right student.
I was thrilled to be named Teacher of the Year for Oakland County, Michigan in 2008.
I received my my bachelors degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and masters degree in Reading, bot from Eastern Michigan University.
