I teach third grade at Arbor Heights Elementary School in Seattle, WA and am having a wonderful time in my eighth year there. I also teach art to another third grade class and find that very rewarding. Before coming to Arbor Heights, I taught special education for 10 years.
I grew up in the midwest (North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota)
and then moved to Manchester, Connecticut. I received a BA in psychology
from the University of Connecticut (go
Huskies!) in 1973. I then moved to Seattle, where I received my teaching
certificate and M.Ed. from the University
of Washington (go Huskies!) in 1981.
I have spent a lot of time developing the Arbor
Heights Home Page, on the web now for nearly
four years! In 1995 I attended an awards ceremony in San Francisco as
the only school nominated in the GNN Best of the Net Awards. Arbor Heights
was also the only school to make the semi-finals round of the 1997 GII Awards
Here's my favorite WWW link outside of education. If you are a
Windows or Windows 95 user, this place is a must see - one you will return
to again and again: Stroud's
