I am in my sixth year of teaching and currently working as a Middle School Reading Coach. I also have experience as an elementary reading and math interventionist and High School Social Studies. I love that there are amazing things to love about every grade!
I believe in supporting and scaffolding the students and letting them discover their own understanding.
I've been a presenter at Literacy and OSBA conferences where we highlighted the benefits of multicultural literature and the benefits of academic reading coaches in secondary schools.
In 2011 I graduated from Kent State University with a Masters in Reading Specialization. I have an undergrad degree in Integrated Social Studies 7th-12th grade.
I am mom to three elementary aged kiddos that are amazing and keep me invested and tuned into the needs of the whole student. Its not only about the academics! I am also the wife of a police officer and lover of reading!
