As the year has progressed, i have learned that flexibility is the key factor to my teaching this year. i have bee working with 6 different teachers with 150 students involved in various levels of learning. I see the beginning of the glow of learning in a students eyes and I see the cloud of frustration in others. My job has become to help lighten the glow and to remove the cloud whenever possible.

I am a 28 year veteran of Teaching. I have taught preschool up to graduating seniors in various settings here in Florida and in Illinois. I have also taught at the college level for pre-teacher education.
I am a single mother of two children and so I know the joys of juggling home and work life and trying to be the best parent I can be and best teacher for the students I get to guide during each school year. Each year brings a new special feeling of awe and wonder as I watch my students blossom and grow and get to see former students make the growth needed to be successful in middle school.
