I am a literacy specialist that has 23 years experience. My experience includes teaching Kindergarten through Fourth grade and Reading Recovery. I was also a Literacy Coach for K-2 classroom teachers and a Reading Recovery Teacher Leader for Reading Recovery teachers. I am currently a Literacy Specialist for the county I work in, that does professional development and offers resources and classroom support for K-2 teachers.
“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations--something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.” ~ Katherine Patterson
