Welcome to 3Z!! I love teaching 3rd grade and working with 3rd graders. I have been teaching since 1993 in many different settings. I have taught elementary, junior high and high school. I have taught both special education and general education in all of these settings. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State University. I have a Masters Degree in Special Education from Illinois State University with certificates in Middle School Education and Assistive Technology. I live on a farm outside of El Paso with my husband and our 3 children.
