This is my 31st year teaching! I have taught at all three levels. My first 10 years were spent teaching 8th grade reading @ Camden Middle.  The next 5 years were spent in the keyboarding/Business Lab.  Then I was named the Instructional Technology Specialist at Camden High school for 6 years.  During the big Budget Cuts, I was reassigned to Blaney Elementary and taught 5th grade social studies for three awesome years.  I have now been in the second computer lab for 8 years (Wildcat Enrichment!!) working with the students to enhance their reading and math skills. 


There is never any homework in Wildcat Enrichment.
