Howdy- I am Ms. Love...I have served as an educator in D11 for 12 years in grades K-6th and as a Gifted Education Specialist. Prior to my D11 roles, I was an early childhood educator, director and curriculum specialist for multiple early learning centers in town. My CCU Masters degree emphasizes online teaching and learning, and I am presently a PhD Candidate in North Central University's Early Childhood Education program. My teaching pedagogy and personality is best suited for helping 6th graders transition from an elementary to middle school setting. I run a digital-based company called Critical Thinking Kids, LLC (find us on Facebook), which promotes critical thinking and provides resources to educators, families and children. In 2013 I wrote and published a book titled, Will a Horse Eat a Hamburger? which promotes critical thinking literacy strategies.
I am extremely humbled by and proud of my five children (two sons ages 12 and 15 and triplet 4 year-old daughters), who daily remind me of what really matters in life, make me laugh, and keep pushing me to become a better version of myself. Recently we added to our family, Bruno (Mars) and Melody (Mel-Mel; Fefe; Mela) brother and sister Chihuahuas.
