I have been a Kindergarten Teacher, 1st Grade Teacher and Reading Specialist for the last 11 years.and now I get to be a full- time MAMA! I have always worked in a Title 1 building so my passion is to provide new and engaging tools for struggling learners.
I utilize hands-on and active participation activities. My goal is to find new ways to help struggling readers become successful readers!
I have had the opportunity to write and provide training in the areas of fluency, MTSS, reciprocal teaching and guided reading.
I have two masters degrees in Counseling and Reading.
I have three fabulous children ages 3.5 and under and an amazing husband! I LOVE spending all of my free time with my family and just being a mama. It is the most important job in my life!
