I taught in the classroom for 6 years and loved every minute of it. After 6 years, of teaching I moved out of the classroom to become our school's literacy coach, curriculum specialist, Title 1 director, and testing director. I love working with our struggling readers and helping new teachers refine their skills.
I believe you must be able to teach in all the ways kids learn. So I teach through direct instruction, inquiry based learning, project approach, CORI, exploration, and Socratic method. I am always researching new ways to reach my students and help them succeed in life.

I love living in Utah where I can enjoy the mountains and desert. I love to mountain bike and rock climb with my husband. We also enjoying working in our yard. In my alone time I love to curl up with a good book and read.
