During the last 5 years of my teaching career (1996- 2001) I was a resource specialist. I developed resources for the teachers in my building.  I am retired now after teaching for 32 years.  Even though I am out of the classroom, I've continued to develop novel studies to share with those of you who are teaching now. Each of my study guides has been developed as a result of a teacher's request. Once the literature study was created, I began to offer them on this website. I have been doing this for eleven years.

 

 

 

 The really great thing is that I will develop more study guides upon your request.
