I am a passionate teacher. I truly care about the children and care about helping them make themselves the best they can be!

I wanted to be a teacher ever since I could remember. I don't remember ever wanting to be anything but a teacher. When I was in high school, I was able to work in a Kindergarten for a couple of hours a week, and that finalized my decision. I went to a teacher's college, and worked hard to do well, because I wanted to get a job! Every job I had along the way, I chose with teaching in mind. I was a babysitter, lifeguard (including teaching swimming lessons), camp counseling, and day care provider. It was always about the kids. I managed to graduate with highest honors, (summa cum laude) which helped me land that first teaching job.

I've taught just about every grade for the last 40 years, but my favorite was definitely teaching Kindergarten. I think I spent the most years in second grade, but I've taught everything between Pre-K through 8th grade at some point. Somewhere along the line I managed to get a Master's degree in Creative Arts in Learning, too! (A perfect match for me!)

The primary grades have always been my strength. I relate to that age group the best, and have the background needed for beginning readers, writers, and mathematicians.

I did it for 40 years. 
I retired last June, and I miss it terribly.

About the picture:  I estimate this picture was taken about 10 years ago at the start of the year in my second grade classroom. It was at Open House the night before school started that year. My happy place.
