I have spent the last 3 years serving as the Reading Specialist in an elementary school. I have over 20 years of teaching experience with the majority of my career spent teaching sweet little kindergarten students. I currently work as the Reading Specialist serving in an inclusion setting with all grades in my school.
I believe all students can learn with time, patience, encouragement, and great materials. I focus on hands on learning that get students engaged and allows them to have fun while they are learning.
