    I was looking for a presentation that captured the main tenets of the ELA Common Core...and this one delivered! Participants thought it was well-written and easy to understand; it made them feel less overwhelmed. Thank you!

    • I do think it's appropriate. I actually created it when there were 5 new teachers hired at one building. I found it very helpful and practical!

I have been in the education system for 19 years, starting out as a teacher for primary and intermediate grades. I spent four years as a principal but missed being with the kids so I returned to the classroom three years ago. I have been particularly interested in the testing focus everywhere. I have been on the administration side of it, and understand the pressure. To avoid “teaching to the test” every day, I strive to incorporate the grade level standards into my daily curriculum. My goal is that this results in just plain good teaching and not just teaching to the test. My other interest is in integrating Science across other content areas—the kids really like the hands-on experiments and I enjoy taking advantage of their enthusiasm. If you’re around right after school, you will find me packing up my bag on the back of my bike to head home. I am an amateur bike racing enthusiast and in college I won the top honor for my racing team.
