TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been in education for over 15 years! I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Kansas State University---Go Cats! I earned my reading specialist and Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Wichita State University. Currently I work as a Learning Support Specialist (a mix of intervention and providing professional development) for a pk-3rd grade elementary school. My main passion is reading intervention

MY TEACHING STYLE

If you were to walk into my classroom---you would feel energy and positivity. I LOVE for students to be interactive, problem solvers, using manipulatives and tapping into technology. Oh--and I must not forget-- talking! I want my students discussing, laughing and truly enjoying learning!
