I am currently certified in elementary education, teaching English Language Learners, and Educational Administration. I work with all grade levels in my building on a daily basis and deliver all the professional development to the teachers. I am current on the standards for all grades as well as the new Common Core State Standards that our state has implemented. I am in charge of the after school tutoring program in our school that students in grades 3-5 attend, and have taught summer school several summers over the years.
I have been a classroom teacher for 14 years and a literacy specialist for the last 6 years. I have helped many students learn how to become organized and learn how to know what types of techniques best help with studying.

My current position as a literacy specialist allows me to train teachers on the latest strategies to best help their students, so I am always attending professional development and learning new things.
