Dear Teachers,

Ah, to be a teacher in 2010. Layoffs. Testing. Weakening of tenure. Always under the microscope. Kids these days. Parents these days! Politics.

But isn’t it wonderful all the same?

Teach and be well,


meet What's New or Cool

‘It is the 21st century now and children learn differently than they did in the past. We need to actively engage our students and make learning more meaningful to them. I use an electronic SMARTboard for all of my lessons. The students are captivated by this astonishing interactive tool and are motivated to begin each lesson because learning is so much fun.’
