Here is a female long-eared owl I adopted at Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory in Duluth, Minnesota, at a family owl evening around a campfire with their naturalists.
Here is a photo of a Sharp-shinned hawk she adopted. Daytime birds are OK, too!
Education Is My Passion

I had National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist 2004-2014. I am a licensed, certified teacher in Minnesota through 2020 I have recently been certified in First Aid and CPR (Pediatric through Adults) by the Red Cross.

Writing Is My Love
I am a member of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and have free lessons on a site they are associated with, ReadWriteThink. I also write at The New Book Review.
I write curriculum for the grade levels I have taught over the years, including self-contained grades one, two, three, four, and five. I have also taught gifted education and thinking skill classes from kindergarten to grade six.
My main emphasis is on a subject that is close to my heart, literacy. Many of my lessons are based on specific children’s books to encourage comprehension and a love of reading. I also enjoy writing lessons for math and social studies, among others.
I hope you find many helpful lessons and educational materials on this site.
