I have been teaching for 34 years. I began my teaching career overseas at American Schools in Honduras and Venezuela. Currently, I am a reading specialist and literacy coach with 4th and 5th graders. I have endorsements in reading and early childhood education. Primarily, I have taught primary grades (haha) but have also been an instructional coach and mentor teacher with Albuquerque Public Schools and the University of New Mexico, respectively.
Eclectic!! In this world of virtual experience, I strongly believe in a Hands-on Science and Language Experience approach to literacy instruction.
