I taught first and second grade for 9 years, first in Connecticut and then in Texas. I now stay at home with my one year old baby girl.
I am passionate about teaching reading. I love working with my students in small groups and enjoy seeing the rest of my students actively engaged in meaningful literacy activities during this time.
Getting my reading specialist and master reading teacher certification!
I received my Bachelor's degree from Westfield State College, where I majored in elementary education and science. I then completed my master's degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in literacy studies from the University of Texas at Arlington.
