I have been teaching part time at Lesley for over ten years. I have taught weekly in Cambridge and through the cohort weekend model in many New England areas. Last year, I taught weekly both semesters in Cambridge and through an online course in May and June. I developed, with the guidance of Mary Mindess, a course: Literacy and the Arts for Young Children. I taught the course in the weekend format.
