I am an award winning elementary teacher (Florida Teacher of the Year) and an award winning principal (National School of Excellence-Purchase School in Harrison, NY).I am certified in several states to teach K-6, all subjects and K-12 history.

I am a blogger and the author of a recently published book. I have written more than 90 articles on my website, contributed editorial pieces to the Palm Beach Post and wrote a weekly column for the Naples Daily News for six months. Recently, I have been asked to write a monthly column for The Beacon, a local advertising magazine in Jupiter, FL.

Though not working this semester, I have been an adjunct professor at PBSC since 2006 where I have taught reading and Education courses. I taught during the spring semester in 2013.

I am a former Florida Teacher of the Year. Most of my teaching was at the elementary level. As an award winning elementary principal, I chaired a district-wide language arts committee and brought the whole language reading curriculum to my school. I have taught reading and tutored primary students. Phonemic awareness is critical to learning sounds and developing vocabulary. It's best to learn sounds within real words. It's less isolating and more relevant.
