TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my 34th year of teaching! I have been a Reading Specialist for 25 years. I am Reading Recovery trained and taught this wonderful program for 11 years and I have also acted as a Reading Coach. I was a Kindergarten and 1st grade classroom teacher after I was Reading Recovery trained so know how to apply these techniques to small group and whole group instruction. WAY back in the day, I also taught 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Provide lots of hands-on learning and follow the lead of the child!
