I've been an educator for more than 40 years. I've taught young children in preschool and graduate students in doctoral programs. I taught elementary school for seven years, was on the faculty at Antioch University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and George Mason University where I taught undergraduate and graduate students who were teachers, aspiring teachers, or teacher educators. For many years I taught adolescents in programs like Upward Bound, summer school, and summer work training programs. I've also taught seniors in drama and computer skills.
I am a creative writer and academic writer and researcher. I am also a performer. The many branches of written and oral language is where I can offer a breadth of knowledge and instruction--in writing, speaking, reading, and computer programs, such as Word and Power Point, that facilitate communication. I believe that learning should be a lifelong goal, and so I make sure that laughter and joy, curiosity, discussion, and discovery are a part of the learning experience. I strive to make learning applicable and creative so that it makes sense to the learner in a way that can be retained, rather than forgotten after the test.
I have a BA in elementary ed; an M.Ed in Educ Communications and Technology; a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction. I taught elementary Ed for 7 years, and taught teachers for 20 years.
I taught phonics as a part of teaching reading skills in my classroom of 1-3rd graders. I studied phonics as a part of my BA in elementary education. I also studied phonics as a part of my training in public speaking and diction in drama.
