I have worked in a variety of teaching positions since receiving my degree in 1987. I was the head teacher at a special needs preschool. I have taught 4th and 3rd grades, Kindergarten (for 10 years), was a Kindergarten Literacy Tutor, a long-term sub in 1st and 2nd grades, and a Title 1/Reading Recovery Teacher at 2 other schools.
I have worked at EEMS as a Reading Recovery/Title 1 Literacy Teacher since September 2011. I love to read and enjoy having the opportunity to work with, and support, young learners as they become active readers and writers.
