I have been teaching for 14 years! I have taught 3rd grade, 6th grade, K-2 technology, and this is my eighth year teaching Reading Recovery and literacy groups. I love my job! It is so rewarding and I truly enjoy every minute.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Central Michigan University (Go, fire up Chips!) in Journalism and Graphic Design. I then made a small change in career choice and returned to school (this time Eastern Michigan University) to obtain my teaching certificate. I majored in English Language Arts with a minor in Elementary Education. In 2009 I received my Reading Recovery certification from Oakland University. I completed my Master's degree in K-6 Reading and Literacy in August 2011.
