I am most recently experienced in teaching RTI to grades K-5. My work included novel studies, reading strategies, vocabulary work, gaining fluency through repeated readings, and using new strategies to help us better comprehend what we read!
I believe in an active and engaged classroom. The more I can get my students up and moving, interacting with their world, the more fun all of us will have learning! I am a constructivist at heart.
Apple Award from my Reading team in the Spring of 2013!
I began my educational journey at the University of Texas, Austin and due to a job shift ended up receiving my Bachelor's at the University of Missouri, St. Louis.
I've been married to my fantastic husband for nearly 6 years. Together we have a spoiled tumbling toddler who is almost 1.5 years old! We share the abode with the gentlest giant, Koda (a newfoundland mix), our faithful floor cleaner.
