I began teaching in 1998 and love to share my ideas! I am a NBCT, Intervention Teacher (grades K-5), and former Literacy Coach (grades 3-5). I have trained grade levels and staff in implementation of best practices in Literacy, and blog about all things literacy at www.HelloMrsSykes.com.
I believe in meeting every student where they are to give them the tools to be a successful 21st century learner. I am particularly passionate about developing the vocabulary of all learners, which sets the stage for future successes!
National Board Certified in Early/Middle Childhood Literacy, 2010
I studied Elementary Education and K-12 Literacy at East Carolina University. Go Pirates! :)
I love teaching and sharing with other teachers.
