This is my 22nd year to teach! I have taught elementary music, middle school and high school choir, 4th grade ELAR and social studies, and middle school speech. I finished my master's degree in 2017 and moved into the literacy specialist position on my campus.
I believe that reading and writing should be connected. We can learn so much from published authors, and it helps students to be better writers. I feel that students retain information better when they learn it in a song.

I have a supportive husband and 4 wonderful children that keep my life very busy, but I wouldn't change one minute of it. I always think about how I would want my children to be treated by a teacher in the classroom with love, concern, and a caring heart. That's how I want to treat each child that comes to my classroom every day. They become part of my family.
