TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am still loving Early Literacy in my 28th year! Currently, I am in my 17th year as a Reading Specialist for first and second graders. As a certified Reading Recovery teacher, my Grade One students are given the opportunity to accelerate in a one-to-one setting. I conduct small group reading interventions for my Grade 2 students. My previous experience includes twelve years as a Grade One Teacher, a Literacy Coach, and a Reading Supervisor. My heart remains with the young and curious learner.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style embraces the whole child, recognizing the need to make our youngest learners feel cared for and valued along their literacy journey. I believe in building an "I can do it mindset" where mistakes and misunderstandings are used in positive ways to help the child move forward. I am a strong believer in bringing parents into the learning process, where they can build excitement for learning and interact positively, as their child progresses.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am a two-time National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy-Language Arts/Early and Middle Childhood. I received "Teacher of the Year" in 2002 from the district in which I teach. In 2003 I was the National Education Association's affiliate nominee for my state for the NEA Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence and was given the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. for the main event.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

As a high schooler, I received a full athletic scholarship to Ohio University where I completed two years of my undergraduate in Elementary Education. I transferred to the University of Rhode Island and completed my double Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and Speech communication. Then went on to obtain my Masters in Reading Education.
