If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
Educational Support and Development
I taught Social Studies and Language Arts for 33 years in a public high school. Now retired and have a non-profit, TeachIdaho.
How many years have you been teaching?:
I have been involved in education for more than 40 years.
"individual white boards"
I am passionate about education and finding a way to help teachers remember why they wanted to be a teacher. I have a grandson, the joy of my life, and a daughter who is a special educator. My husband also taught, 3 doors down from me, for 33 years. My son-in-law is currently waiting in Kenya to get his green card.
I think the best thing we can do for students is continuously work on developing empathy in them. The problems we face in the world today require "perspective taking" and otherness that, frankly, is missing in our society today.
