I have taught 17 years in public education in grades K, 1 and currently a reading specialist. I have my master's in Reading and Literacy.
I like provide many hands on and engaging opportunities and love to bring music, movement, and poetry into the classroom. I provide a structured yet very loving environment where mistakes are not only allowed but expected! I love working with young emergent readers. It is exciting to watch the reading development occur. So...Let's Start Reading!

My husband and I have two sons who keep us on our toes. We are super busy going to their sporting events. I love Zumba, traveling, and gardening. And of course reading...whenever I find free time. (ha ha)
