Over 25 years of Kindergarten and Special Needs instruction! After enjoying 9 rewarding years as a learning disabilities teacher, I decided to teach kindergarten so that I could identify and begin to provide support for those students who were academically at risk. I have had several activity workbooks published for grades K-3. These books were designed to reinforce the correction of reversals, strengthen visual discrimination, reinforce alphabet sounds and formations, and strengthen decoding skills for words with short vowels, long vowels, blends, consonant digraphs, vowel digraphs, and diphthongs.
Fun, interactive, and engaging while in the classroom. I have put together these exercises to help other teachers actively help students.

I love to illustrate, and am always open to new ideas or techniques! I am a published author of children's books and educational materials, and have been working as a freelance illustrator when I have time outside of my classroom.
