I am a Reading Specialist at the Elementary level and have had the chance to teach at all levels, K - 5. I have been teaching for over 20 years and have been teaching Reading for 15 years.
My style is to motivate my students to love and appreciate the power of reading and learning.
I have a BA in History with a minor in Archaeology from the College of Wooster (Ohio). I went back to get my teaching certification at the Elementary level from the University of Akron. I have a MA in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading from Catawba College (North Carolina). I have Reading certification in Grades K - 12.
I come from a family of educators. My grandfather, father, mother, sister, two aunts, an uncle, and a couple of cousins are, or have been, educators.
