About MARY

Thanking my teachers for the lessons they taught me, I live a life of learning and bring out the best I can in others.

My first love was always writing. The art of language brought me immeasurable pleasure. Seeing, hearing, listening and feeling - putting those senses into words was magic. Using the advances of the the computer age just added to the skills of reading, writing and publishing.

I taught for many years as a language arts teacher with the traditional methods of assigning text books, workbooks and homework. With the new addition to the classroom, the computer, my students in grades kindergarten to high school had the innovation we came to know as the internet. Suddenly, research took on a new meaning and the students came to know how to use use it faster than their parents could!

My classroom years specifically where in the seventh and eighth grades teaching language arts. I am proficient in MAC computers and some of their products. I can teach long division to compiling an essay for senior in high school.
