1st Grade Teacher 2nd Grade Teacher STEM Summer Camp Teacher Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach (Grades K-6)
I love hands-on, student-driven, targeted and social learning. I believe in using data to figure out what students need, and designing instruction and materials to give them exactly that. I know how incredibly time-consuming it can be, which is why I want to develop the materials for you to use, and take that burden off. Then your focus can be on planning!
Collaborated with an amazing staff at a school that was selected to be Nationally Recognized Title I School in 2014.
My undergrad is in Early Childhood Education from James Madison University. My Master's degree is in Reading Education from the University of Virginia. After teaching in the classroom for five years, I decided that I wanted to make a bigger impact, so I became a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach. I absolutely love collaborating with teachers and teams to unpack standards, design assessments, plan awesome instruction, assess and analyze data, reteach and reflect on the teaching and learning.
Currently, I stay at home with my twin boys, but I miss working with teachers and teams every day. Creating my Teachers Pay Teachers store gives me an opportunity to continue that work and create awesome literacy activities for you!
