I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan and taught for 37 years. Most of which was at the kindergarten level. I split my teaching years between the Rialto and Redlands Unified School Districts in California. When I began my teaching career in 1964 I had no idea the long lasting impact it would have on my life. I met my future husband at a teacher's party and decorated my children's nursery with TLC art from my classroom. I have presented workshops at education conferences all across the United States. Through the books I have been able to share ideas with teachers from New York to Hawaii, Canada to Mexico, and even internationally from Ireland to Japan, from United Arab Emirates to Africa and Australia.
Hands on learning focusing on integrating the curriculum.
In 1986 I received the Rialto Chamber of Commerce Service to Education Award. I was selected by my colleagues in Redlands to receive the Outstanding Teacher Award in 2002.
