Thank you for checking out my profile! I am a certified teacher currently employed by Volusia County Public Schools. I have 21 years of teaching experience. 5 of those years have been spent as a Reading Specialist. I have a Master's Degree in Literacy Education and a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education. I have continued my own professional learning in the area of literacy since completing my Master's degree. I specialize in foundational reading skills, but feel comfortable teaching students of all abilities in all areas of reading. I have the ability to assess student needs using research based assessment tools. My entire career has been spent individualizing instruction to my students and feel confident I could help your child. I am able to adjust lessons on the fly if something is not working at the moment. Three things, out of so many, I have learned while working with students with a variety of needs is that you need to get to know the child, be flexible, and responsive to the climate of the instruction you are engaged in at the moment. Let's get your child on the path to not just learning to read, but learning to enjoy reading. Let's get started!!!!
