I have been teaching for over 15 years. I've taught Kindergarten through eighth grade. I have also served as a writing specialist, reading specialist, and literacy coach. I facilitate professional development on the local school level as well as the county level. I am certified in Pre-K-5th, as well as Social Studies and ELA in grades 4-8. In addition, I have a coach endorsement from the state of Georgia.
I am a HUGE proponent of the Balanced Literacy approached to teaching young students literacy skills. Reading Workshop, Writing Workshop, Guided Reading, and all of the other components of Balanced Literacy, help ensure students have the best opportunity to acquire literacy skills.
