Welcome to Zen and tHEART of teaching My name is Lori Asquith. I currently teach 2nd grade and Academic Literacy at our local community college. I live and teach in Upstate NY, but my heart resides in Italy. I have taught every grade level ek-6 and hold a MS in Literacy. I am a seasoned, award winning teacher and a district wide staff developer. This September will mark my 18th year of teaching! 12 years in a classroom and 6 years as a literacy specialist and staff developer!.
Hands on, firm, but fair, manners matter and we are all a work in progress style.
Distinguished Teacher 2 years and WBGN Tv's Educator of the week
I received my BS in Education EK-6 with a concentration in Child Development from State University of New York @ Oneonta and my Masters Degree in Literacy from Binghamton University.
Zen and tHEART of teaching is intended to provide resources, wisdom and fun for educators. When I’m not teaching, reading, or eating cookies, you will find me outside playing spud with my children, turning back tucks on the trampoline, listening to 70’s music, or throwing a party!
