I have been teaching for over 20 years, and have taught all grade levels, from infants through adults. I love teaching the little ones how to read. After teaching special education and general education Kindergarten and 1st grade for the last decade, I've embarked on a new adventure and am now our school librarian.
I love all things literacy, and integrate reading and writing into everything I do.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Literacy, Reading and Language Arts (LRLA) for Early and Middle Childhood.
I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education, a Masters in Curriculum Teaching and Learning with an emphasis in Early Literacy Development. In addition, I am certified in Special Education and have Reading and Library/Media endorsements.
I am Mom to 2 teen-aged boys and two dogs. My husband and I have been married for over twenty years. We live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our family loves to travel and experience other cultures.
