This is my 30th year of teaching and encouraging middle level students. Hurrah! I have a Masters Degree in Middle Level Education from Central Michigan University, and an Elementary Education degree from Illinois State University. 
    I have taught nearly every grade in the K-12 configuration and I also teach at the university level.  I am presently an online instructor for Walden University.  This is my fifth year at Anthem on the most dynamic team I have ever been on.  I have taught in MN, MI, and IL.
    I love teaching Middle School students! Each day is new and every moment unexpected. I also write curriculum for Sleeping Bear Press and author Roland Smith, check out his website  at www.rolandsmith.com   I spearheaded a team who traveled to Haiti in 2011. We trained over 70 teachers. I hope to return someday soon with my whole Awesome Team.
