Welcome to Advanced Studies 2016-17
I am new to University Academy this year, teaching Advanced Studies K-5. I have taught preschool through graduate school for more than 20 years, primarily in Delaware, although I grew up just a few blocks from here and went to
JC Nichols Elementary school (now Academy Lafayette) and Southwest High School. I find life very interesting and hope to impart a real love of learning to my students.
My undergraduate degree is from Beloit College in Wisconsin. My first Master's is from Washington University in St. Louis in Energy and Environmental Policy. I worked a number of years for state government with the MO Department of Natural Resources. I have a Master's in Education from Wilmington University in Delaware as well.
I also know sign language and have been an interpreter for deaf people for 30-odd years.
