I currently hold a Doctorate of Education in Teacher Leadership. The purpose of my dissertation was to conduct a causal-comparative study that determined the affects of the cooperative learning strategy, Learning Together, on student achievement in Physical Science. Additionally, I have a Specialist Degree in Teacher Leadership. I also hold a Master's Degree in Literacy and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Middle Grades. I have been teaching in the elementary classroom for over 25 years. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to now teach STEM to grades Kindergarten through 5th. I absolutely love to teach science, and enjoy working in our school's Providence Patch. I look forward to teaching science, technology, engineering, art, and math in my classroom!
