I have a passion for kids and empathize with their struggles. Through lots of fun and varied reading activities, as well as a strong emphasis on writing, and imbedding the foundational keys of phonetics into everything, students forget that we are working.
Currently, a first-grade teacher trained in the Tyner method of Reading Intervention, Fontas and Pinnell LLI reading intervention program, as well as Fundations Phonics Program.
