I began my teaching career as a first grade teacher and loved every minute of it! I then went on to earn my Master's degree in Reading and Language Arts and am currently a Literacy Specialist at a Title 1 school. I work intensively with struggling readers in grades 1-4. Working with struggling readers has taught me the importance of celebrating even the smallest victories :).
