I have taught public school for 38 years from grades 2-8, including ESL. I have taught all subjects and was a music specialist with choirs from grades 3-6. I have also been the music director for adults in a church for 18 years. I was a substitute for special ed and middle and high school. I have sung in professional choirs, been a soloist, and played piano, flute and handbells. I directed a handchime choir. I have been tutoring adults with the literacy department of LAPL. My specialty is reading, language, spelling, writing and math. I have traveled all over the world and speak French and adequate Spanish, with knowledge of some Turkish.

I have majors in Sociology and Music. My two masters are in Education Administration and Supervision and Masters in Music Ed. I have minors in English and Science. I have taken numerous workshops and classes with top choral conductors. I volunteer with the L.A Opera and USC Gerontology Dept. I am an avid reader, reading a minimum of 1-2 books a week.

Grammar,

Grammar

When I began teaching, we were expected to teach all aspects of language, including reading, spelling, writing and grammar. Then linguistics became the trend and I studied the course. Later, the whole language approach from Australia came to pass and we were all trained in that approach. When that happened, grammar and spelling were discarded. Many years later, they were brought back but I always continued teaching spelling and grammar. I love all the language arts.

Most of my 38 years of teaching has been in K-6. I taught 6th grade for 18 years and was the music teacher, besides teaching all the required subjects. The rest of the years I taught in 3rd and 4th grades. My first year of teaching was in a one-room classroom with grades 5-8. I also taught grades 7-8 and did substitute teaching in elementary through high school. I also worked in special ed.
