I have taught first grade for 26 years with one additional year in a third/fourth grade classroom.
Learning is social.
I was recently named Reading Specialist of the Year by the faculty/staff at my local university. I've also had four ideas published in a nationally recognized teaching magazine.
I hold a B.S. in elementary education and a Master's in reading.
I am a married mother of two young adults and I thoroughly enjoy creating new things for my classroom.
