I have taught first grade for 6 years in North Carolina and Tennessee.
I am very passionate about Balanced Literacy.
I have presented at LRA (Litearcy Researcher's Association) in 2012 and at the AACTE (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education) in 2013. I will also present at the ISSOTL conference (International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) later this year.
Bachelors Degree from University of North Carolina-Asheville Masters Degree from University of Tennessee
I love sharing my ideas and experience with using literacy in my classroom. I strive to teach my students to be independent, creative, and critical thinkers.
