WELCOME!!  23/24 is going to be an awesome year!!

I have been teaching for over 25  years; my certification is in elementary education,  K through 6th grades.   I also have a degree in psychology.  I have taught third,  fourth and fifth grades; and I began my teaching career working with severely and profoundly impaired children and adults.       My areas of special interest are in reading, writing, and science!  I am also certified ESOL; I  have completed my trainings for Students with Disabilities; and lastly, I obtained my Reading Certification in early 2022 as required by the State!!    I am OG certified as well;  Orton Gillingham is a specialized learning system that helps kids to learn phonics and to become better spellers and readers.  It is a comprehensive and detailed program.  Some of the program is "getting back to the basics" of connecting phonics with word analysis.  I also use Brainspring phonics and UFLI phonics/reading programs.

After teaching 3rd grade for nine years; and 4th/5th grades for over 15 years - I shifted gears!!  

23/24 year - will be  my second year serving SMA as a Reading Interventionist for 2nd/3rd grades!!  I will be working with learners who are having difficulty with some areas of ELA - reading - which includes reading, writing, phonics, and spelling!!   I will be using a program named "Secret Stories" - and resources from my OG training, Brainspring and UFLI trainings,  and my Reading Endorsement process to supplement and help these struggling readers!

My personal philosophy:  "Education is not the filling of a is the lighting of a fire!"   TOGETHER....let's light some fires of interest and love for reading,  education, and creating life long learners!
