I have been in public education for 22 years. I am a Title 1 Reading Specialist for Early Childhood, currently in First Grade.
I do a lot of direct instruction because my students are below grade level in reading. But, I also love cooperative learning. I focus my teaching on the gradual release model. I want my students to feel successful, so whatever I am teaching, I model, model, model.
I have my National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist. My honor is to teach students on a daily basis and work with colleagues who challenge and inspire me to be my best.
