My Teaching Style
I am a strong advocate for classroom differentiation. I prefer to be a facilitator for small group instruction, offering choices for students through menus and differentiated products that demonstrate mastery.
My Teaching Experience
I taught self-contained 2nd grade, and departmentalized 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. I taught Gifted students, ESL students, heterogeneous grouped classes, and cluster groups. My strengths are in Reading and English Language Arts, although I have taught every subject at some time. For the last 15 years of my 35 year career, I was a district level administrator of gifted and talented services.

My Own Education History
I have always loved education. When I was 3, my mother was expecting a second child, so she put me in a private kindergarten to learn to get along with other children, and I kept going for 3 years! I initially majored in Computer Science with a math minor, but switched to education at the end of the first semester because I felt isolated in a very male dominated field. I wanted to work with children and liked talking and working collaboratively with other women. I went through my Bachelor's program in two and a half years instead of 4, and was the first in my cohort to complete my Doctorate, graduating a semester ahead of the other 30 in the group. I have always been in a hurry to get on to the next adventure. I have a preference for reading research and keeping up with the latest innovations in education.
