Welcome friends! I have been in education for many years teaching in both elementary and special education. I also taught for 5 years in Japan. Currently I am a Reading Specialist.
I love to think of creative ways for my students to learn. I try to inspire creativity and a love of learning in my students.
The most rewarding honors and awards I receive are from the feedback from my students.
Southern Illinois University- MS in education
I am married with 4 children and a dog named Sushi! He is named after our time spent in Japan.
