I have been teaching for over 25 years. My goal is to provide multiple access points to a rigorous curriculum while encouraging students to achieve their dreams. I hold two Master's Degrees; a M Ed. in Integrating the Arts into the Curriculum from Lesley University and a M Ed. in Reading from Black Hills State University. I am also a National Boards Certified Teacher. In the course of my lifetime I have been inspired by the visual arts, poetry, yoga, travel and nature. I look forward to contributing to this network of teacher created lessons by bringing my passion to the page.
