I have over 20 years experience in teaching math, reading, writing, science, and social studies in all grade levels preK through college. I have been a teacher in both public school and homeschool. I also have been a tutor for elementary, middle, high school and college students as well as adults seeking their GED.
I love learner centered activities, group activities and experimental learning activities. I have used many games in my classroom including just about every board game available. I love to use integrated lessons to teach concepts because life is not segmented and things naturally overlap. I have always been that teacher who would rather create my own activities rather than use the textbook day after day.
Yet to be added
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary education from Oklahoma State University in 1997. I hold valid teaching certifications from Texas and Oklahoma. I am certified to teach all core subjects.
I am the mother of three, 2 grown and one teenager. We have two dogs. I enjoy reading, sewing and working puzzles of all kinds. I also love to create things with my hands...drawing, painting, sculture, woodworking, baking, mowing with my push mower, etc. I always have more than one to-do list. I have a very long bucket list. I know way too much useless trivia. And I really love to learn new things.
