Posted in Thoughts About Children


I have been an educator… advocate for children since 1972…It has been my passion….I have taught all elementary grades; kindergarten through fifth grade…Over twenty as a first grade teacher…

In addition, to my elementary teaching experience, I have a master’s in administration, and I also had the opportunity to teach at the college level, where I lead a seminar for student teachers at the University of Florida while working on advanced course work in Counseling Education….

In 2015 , seven years ago today, I retired from teaching…I was teaching first grade at an elementary school with many children from diverse backgrounds; some of whom lived in impoverished conditions…

I found this position quite challenging; yet one of my most rewarding…I felt, I did make that difference…


Retired elementary public school teacher; all thirty-eight years in Florida... Now spending my time advocating for our children, and their right to strong public school education...With an appreciation for the arts and the beauty in each day…
