I have been teaching for 20 years. I have taught first grade, special education, Reading Recovery, and CIM groups. I have also held the role of Literacy Coach and have lead staff developments.
I would consider my approach to teaching as blended and changing as the students and skill or strategy changes.
Yet to be added
I graduated from Indiana University/Purdue University with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Learning Disabilities. I have over 36 graduate credits, mostly in reading through classes for Reading Recovery and CIM (Comprehensive Intervention Model).
I have been married 20 years and have two children, ages 15 and 17. I love to read and craft in my spare time.
