TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was in the classroom for more than 30 years either teaching early learners or supporting early learners and teachers as a reading specialist. My passion is creating things that make kindergarten teachers lives easier. I also LOVE presenting to teachers. I have presented at several state reading conferences and the International Literacy Association Conferences in Chicago, New Orleans, and San Diego. I'm always up for traveling to a conference. If you'd like to know, just ask.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe teaching must be systematic and intentional. I believe in promoting independence through hands-on experiences.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was the Reading Teacher of the Year for Chesapeake Public Schools in 2007. I am a past BOD member and Past President of the Virginia State Reading Association. I was selected as Vice Chair of the Governor's Teacher Cabinet in 2013-14. I was also on the Board of Directors for the International Literacy Association (but these ideas are mine and are not endorsed by organization in any way). In 2020, I published a book with Teacher Created Materials. The book, The Road to Independent Reading and Writing, is a step-by-step guide for teachers to teach reading and writing to early learners.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate in Special Education was earned in 1989 from Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. I received my Master's of Education and my Reading Certificate from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia in 1996 and 2009, respectively.
