I have been teaching for 17 years. During this time, I have spent 6 years in self-contain elementary classrooms (K, 1, 2, & 3) and spent 11 years as a Title 1 Reading Specialist for Grades K-8. I am currently serving as a self-contained 3rd Grade classroom teacher.
I love hands-on cooperative learning blended with technology and direct systematic instruction.
Yet to be added
I graduated in 2004 with a BSED in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology. In 2010, I earned my MAED in Reading. I have recently undergone IMSE's Orton-Gillingham 30 credit hour training program. During the Fall of 2021 I will begin working on my National Board Certification.
I am a married mother of twin daughters. I love the beach and living a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
