Currently: I am a Literacy Specialist for Great Prairie AEA in Southeast Iowa. I usually work with seven school districts out of the 33 total in our 14 county region. However, my comments are my own and do not reflect the view of my employer. I love to read and dearly love my ereaders . . . all of them because my books are NOT stacking up everywhere! High school football and wrestling are my two favorite sports and I am often found at music events as well! My new love of my life is my grandson who was born on Mother’s Day in 2015.
Life-long Learner: In my MANY years in education, I have had one summer where I did not take classes myself. That was the summer that my husband returned from overseas service for Desert Storm when our son was a year old. Every other summer, I have taught classes and taken classes. It is very important, to me, to model being a life-long learner. Because of my belief system it is also important that I model writing, and therefore, this blog is a tool to continue to enhance and publicly share my writing skills (and in March of 2014, 2015, and 2016 this meant daily blogging for the Slice of Life Challenge with Two Writing Teachers).
Former Roles: Teacher (classroom 4th grade, special education K-12, college), elementary principal, K-12 curriculum development, and K-12 professional development coordinator as well as adjunct graduate instructor for over 20 years
