TEACHING EXPERIENCE

25 + years teaching and still loving it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a reading specialist with experience working with children in K-8. I use whatever strategies, approaches, techniques and materials that fit the needs of my students. I use a variety of programs and approaches-- incorporating Fountas & Pinnell’s Leveled Literacy Instruction program, and the Orton-Gillingham approach; plus a huge dosage of individual praise and positive reinforcement!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

~Outstanding Teacher Award, 1999~ ~My most rewarding moments are when a child comes up to me and asks if we can "read that book again"!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

~Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education ~Masters Degree in Education ~Elementary Endorsement for K-6 ~Reading Specialist Endorsement for K-12 ~Orton-Gillingham Associate Level Certificate, A/AOGPE
