I have been teaching for 20 years at the elementary, undergraduate, and graduate level. I am currently teaching a 4th grade class of highly gifted learners. I have Masters degrees in special education and educational administration and a PhD in gifted and talented development. One of the joys of teaching children is watching them explore ideas and construct their own learning. I have the pleasure of being able to construct much of my own curriculum with my students and we do much of this within the STEM framework.
