A teacher in the San Ramon Valley since 1983, I have taught in classroom, GATE, and remedial environments. I have worked extensively with elementary writers, and developed the summer Writers’ Workshop in 1992.
Additionally, I have been a Mentor Teacher, Master Teacher, Teacher Leader, Support Provider Mentor for new teachers, and a five-time recipient of grant funds from SRVEF. I have been a presenter at many District and regional professional growth workshops for teachers, including The California Center for Literacy Development. I have provided onsite coaching/training to teachers in other districts in the practices of writing.
During 2006-2009 I was a teacher on special assignment working on staff development/coaching for the SRVUSD Reading and Writing Project.
I hold Permanent Teacher Credentials in both California and New York, and I am a Certified Reading Teacher. My 45 Post-Graduate credits follow an MS in Elementary Education and a BS in Social Sciences and Elementary Education. My continuing education includes participation in the Columbia University Teachers College Writing Project.
Although officially retired, I am a reading and writing intervention assistant at an SRVUSD elementary school.
