I hope this site finds you well as you learn about my time as an educator.

Over the past eight years as an educator, I have aimed to develop and use my skill-set.  As a classroom teacher, I taught for mastery with a balance of structure and flexibility.  As a Reading Specialist, I supported teachers in their core instruction, classroom management, and professional learning.

I have a sincere interest in teaching in a team environment where I can work closely with cohorts to plan and implement curriculum while fostering a love of learning. I have worked hard in my time as a teacher and Reading Specialist and was named Teacher of the Year, 2010-11, for my contributions both in and out of the classroom.

My experience, coupled with my willingness to learn and share best practice, enable me to make a positive impact on the children in my charge as well as contributions to the faculty in my cohort.
