I am currently a first grade teacher who has also taught Kindergarten, second, third and fourth grade. I have been teaching for 11 years. I am skilled in teaching reading using current research based methods. I am proficient in teaching Letterland (an intervention based phonic program), Fountas and Pinnell, Stephanie Harvey, and Gretchen Courtney reading programs. I have been trained in current mathematics programs having used Investigation mathematics for the past 11 years. I also use Kathy Richardson's A+ math.

I am certified by the state of North Carolina with a K-6 certification. I have been teaching with Buncombe County schools for ten years. I have taught kindergarten through fourth grade. I attend professional development classes in order to stay current on the latest research-based methods in reading and math. I believe that all instruction should be individualize to best meet the needs of the learner.
Currently trained in Investigation mathematics, AMC mathematics, and I am a trained instructor in Developing Mathematical inquiry.

Phonics is an important aspect of reading and writing. I have been trained in numerous phonics programs including: Letterland, Fountas and Pinnell, Wilson (not certified in Wilson), and Words their Way. Letterland is primarily a K-1 program designed to build a strong foundation for reading and writing. Fountas and Pinnell is a program for all students K-6 which breaks down phonics into appropriate, research based levels dependent upon where the student's learning ability is. Through the use of all programs, individualized instruction can be achieved.
I am trained to teach reading in a variety of ways including: utilizing the late Connie Prevatte methods, Stephanie Harvey, Gretchen Courtney reading programs; and Fountas and Pinnell leveled reading program.
I currently utilize spelling using several spelling programs including: Words Their Way, Letterland, and Four Blocks Spelling.
