I have taught for 10 + years. Kindergarten was my home for a few years, which I loved because of the amazing growth my little kinders made in just one year. I then became a reading specialist- which I also absolutely love- teaching kids how to read and how to become better readers is an amazing thing! I also tutor, am a literacy consultant, provide professional development for teachers on best literacy instruction, teach graduate level college courses for ESL certification and present at national conferences on incorporating technology into the classroom.
I love doing hands on activities with my students. My goal is always to have all my students engaged in their learning!
