"I have been a teacher for 24 years. Previously, I have taught preschool, computer skills, and Special Ed. For the past 10 years I have taught Kindergarten. I have fallen in love with this grade level. Helping younger students reach their potential is extremely rewarding.

I have a master’s degree in reading and feel I am highly skilled in teaching children how to read. I use a multi-sensory approach which allows for more cognitive connections. Students learn letters & sounds by hearing, speaking, touching, movement, and singing. Ultimately, children use these skills to read! I look forward to assisting your child to build critical foundational skills and become a successful reader.

I have been teaching elementary aged students for 24 years. The majority of my time in the classroom has been in the preschool and kindergarten classroom. In addition, I have taught in a Special Ed. classroom, assisting students with reading and math. I returned to school to get my master’s degree 3 years ago. Teaching reading has always been my passion, so that is the area I focused on. Doing so, taught me additional strategies to teach students who may not learn in a traditional way. I also, have three children of my own.

I have a master’s in teaching reading. In addition, I have a reading endorsement. I have 10 years experience teaching specific vocabulary instruction involving read alouds. In addition, I wrote my master’s thesis on the importance of vocabulary instruction and the most successful strategies to achieve this.

I have had a training called LETRS, which teaches teachers all of the fundamentals of teaching reading. This includes phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, and language. I also have taught many reading curriculums and have experience with many phonics strategies.

My goal is to make the learning fun and engaging so that students don’t even realize they are learning! Please reach out to me if you feel I would be a good match with your student. I look forward t" less...
