TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught for 38 years in Elementary Education. I was on the Math Best Practices Team for Minnesota, the Reading Committee, MEEP, the Sci/Math Team, an IGE Team Leader, the computer specialist for our elementary school for 28 years, as well as many other committees and teams throughout my years as a teacher. I retired but continue to substitute in our school for grades K - 12.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I always followed the curriculum for our school but wrote my own units whenever possible. I was a hands on teacher and wanted my students to be thinkers and problem solvers.
