I have been in education for over 25 years! 17 years in the classroom and a reading specialist for the last 9! I have currently transferred to a Title I school and I love it! I love working with both kids and teachers! I have been an adjunct professor at a community college where I taught the History of Education! So fun!! My best friend and I started a literacy camp during the summer months for k-1 kids and successfully ran and owned it for 6 years!
My teaching style is believe in kids and raise the bar knowing that they will reach your expectations EVERY time!!
