"I taught high school English in public schools until I discovered my passion for teaching children with reading disabilities. I have a BA in English and a current teaching license. I decided to leave teaching when my daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia. I enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Teaching: Literacy Specialist program at Colorado College. Teaching the science of reading to my daughter and other children in her position is my passion.

It is my dream to one day open my own literacy center to provide affordable intervention to all students. I believe literacy laws in Colorado have to change, and only then, will I return to a classroom. I have experience helping students of all ages and abilities learn to read and write. I particularly enjoy working one and in small groups and watching student's confidence grow as they learn to read and write.

Reading and writing are my passion. I can teach students with reading disabilities to advanced writers. I use the evidence based Winston grammar program with all students.

I use the Take Flight program. It is a program that works for all levels of dyslexia. It is research based comprehensive program developed by The Scottish Rite hospital in Texas. It is an intervention accepted by the Colorado Department of Education and used in several Colorado Springs district schools. I received my training from Colorado College.

Please feel free to contact me at any time. I'd love to speak with you and help you move on to your next academic goal!" less...
