I am a reading specialist in Massachusetts and before that I taught second grade for 22 years. I love spending time creating resources and activities for language arts and math. I have gotten more interested in digital learning and you can see all of my digital resources here on TPT. I also enjoy teaching science and social studies and have some creating resources in those areas. One of my favorite books is "Math Curse". I have a blog called Reading and Writing Redhead.
My goal is to meet the needs of all students by differentiation and keep them engaged with interesting, valuable, and fun lessons! I have been creating resources that are aligned to the CCSS since 2013. My resources from the past several years are aligned to TEKS and VA SOL, too.

Attended Colby College in Maine, then got my M.Ed in elementary education from Lesley University and then my M.Ed in reading specialist from UMass Lowell.
I grew up in a family with quite a few police officers and teachers. My brother and I are one of each. My aunt and two of my cousins are teachers. They all have inspired me in their own way! I love giant dogs, especially Saint Bernards. I love sweets (watch out if you have Brigham's chocolate ice cream) and reading. My favorite children's books include the Ramona Series (esp. Ramona the Pest) and Alexander and the No Good, Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Day.
