I have been teaching for 32 years and still love what I do! I have taught preschool, kindergarten, pre-first, first, second, and third grade. I now am a Reading Interventionist, and I work with struggling readers in grades 2nd through 5th. I also work with students who have Dyslexia and Dysgraphia.
I try to keep the kids involved in all that we do, so I really try to have interesting literature and activities planned. I want them to love reading and learning, and to feel that their teacher knows how special they are!
