I've spent 18 years growing Upper Elementary Readers, and now I'm moving up to the Middle School.
I am a reading teacher at heart, and read aloud is my favorite part of the day. It’s really quite diabolical, but I love ensnaring kids in a great book—the starry looks in their eyes, their intense questions, and the groans when I close the book for the day, I love it all. That’s also how I get the student buy-in for the rest of my program. And eventually, they learn they can recreate the magic on their own with the right books.
"Best Teacher" and I have the hand-drawn picture to prove it!
I love to learn-my latest accomplishment is a Digital Learning Certificate from Eduspire. I'm National Board Certified in Literacy. I completed my graduate studies at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and my undergraduate studies at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
I live with my husband, daughter, son, and two lazy cats. Two of my favorite past times include reading and gardening.
