Moved to New Mexico from B. C. Canada in 2000. (born in KS) My two educational loves are instructional coaching/facilitation of learning groups and teaching middle school math. I have been working for the last four years for the Jemez Valley Public Schools which serve mostly Native American and Hispanic students. I have learned so much about second language learners in that time. I've also learned about the impact of poverty on learning. I believe very much in Edutopia's endeavors and learn daily from their efforts.
Personally, I have two children, grown, 3 grandchildren, and 2 rescued pit bulls that remind me daily about the joy of each moment.
