TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 31 years in public elementary schools, in a variety of grade levels including a one-room school house. This is my 17th year as a reading specialist, working with students in grades K-3. My love for teaching reading comes from my first 12 years teaching in my own kindergarten classroom and continues now as I work to help struggling readers in a small group setting. Over the years, I have enjoyed creating materials which have proved to be successful and engaging for early learners in developing their literacy skills. I currently continue to create materials for young students as well for students in grades 2 through 3, including our gifted classes.
