Hello! I am the teacher and coordinator of gifted programs for Madeira City Schools. This is my 17th year working as a teacher and coordinator of gifted programs for Madeira, and I feel blessed to be a part of the wonderful school community in Madeira.
This is my 30th year of teaching. During my teaching career, I have taught all grade levels as well as all types of learners across the educational spectrum. My B.S.Ed. (special education) and M.Ed. (gifted education) degrees are from Ohio University and my doctorate is from The Ohio State University with specializations in elementary education, children's literature, and multicultural education.
After school hours, I teach courses at the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University. I have been teaching part-time at the college level for 20 years. I am involved with my church as well as professional organizations throughout the city, state, and nation.
My favorite hobbies are traveling and reading. My husband and I love to play golf, ride bicycles, and travel all over the world. We have visited all 50 states (not just passing through - actual visits) and 33 countries on 5 continents. Plus, we love exploring national parks. We have visited 22 of the 63 national parks.
