9 years in an urban school district.
I love to use literacy in all ways in my classroom. I'm currently the MTSS Coordinator for my K-8 school as well as the K-2 Intervention Specialist. I support my students with what they need, with love, and high expectations.
Trained in Thinking Maps, Guided Reading, Conscious Discipline, CAFE strategies, and Lucy Calkins Writer's Workshop.
I received my undergraduate degree from Central Michigan University with concentrations in math, language arts, and elementary school certifications. I am currently enrolled in the graduate program at the University of Michigan for K-12 Literacy Education.
I love teaching early elementary students and have been expanding into middle school content as well!
