TEACHING EXPERIENCE

21 years of teaching experience in Early Childhood and Elementary Education including classroom teaching in primary grades as well as the intermediate grades. For 8 years, I was a Literacy Coach in my district. Currently, I am working as a Reading Teacher spanning grades K-5. I have a background in Reading Recovery and Wilson Reading as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style includes motivating and engaging books, hands-on activities, and more. I work with small groups of students in grades-5 for reading support in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, fluency, and ELA test preparation.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was on the dean's list at Stephen F Austin State University in East Texas and Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. I have written and received literacy grants for my school.Most recently, I wrote a grant for K-2 classrooms focused on Early Literacy and Writer's Workshop. We received $5000 from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care via a 9/11 Community Grant.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S., Stephen F Austin State University, Texas M.Ed. Lesley University, MA RETELL certification for SEI Students/ELL Learners

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In my free time, you can find me at home cooking, entertaining friends, and playing games with my furball, Sophie. I enjoy photography, the Red Sox, and the New England Patriots. When relaxing, I can be found making beaded jewelry, knitting or making a photo album.
