I work as Facilitator in an elementary school for our reading curriculum. I work with teachers to implement the curriculum, analyze data, and help students succeed. I have also taught first grade, coordinated afterschool enrichment programs for kindergarten through eighth grade, been a middle school Instructional Coach, and worked as a reading specialist! I have 16 years experience working with primary, elementary, and middle school students.
I believe in a balanced approach to literacy through phonics, phonological awareness, comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency.
Yet to be added
I hold a Bachelor's degree in early childhood education and a Master's degree with a reading specialist endorsement.
I am blessed to be the mother of two young sons and the wife of a supportive husband.
