I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with my Masters of Education in Reading
. I graduated from Dallas Christian College in 2006 with an Alternative Teaching Certificate (EC-4)and a Bachelor of Science
in Management and Ethics.
I am a Reading Specialist and a Master Reading Teacher (EC-12). I teach students the required skills to become proficient readers: phonemic awareness, phonics
, fluency, vocabulary
, and reading comprehension. Additionally, I am an accredited tutor with the College Reading and Learning Association International Tutors.
I served as an adjunct professor of ESOL
classes on both the Brookhaven and Richland Community Colleges' campuses. I have also been a substitute teacher and ESL teacher in the Carrollton Farmers Branch ISD.
I enjoy teaching students to read, and am currently tutoring two second graders at a local elementary school. I have been to Shanghai, China, where I taught English
to 2nd grade Chinese
, Taiwanese, and Korean
students for a summer program.
I am affiliated with Literacy Instruction for Texas and have done voluntary ESOL instruction with International Students Inc. at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).
I enjoy being with people, making new friends, caring for rescued greyhounds, serving with my husband on Sundays in the Kids' Branch classroom of four-year-olds at the Farmers Branch church, and teaching international students. I love to read--especially the Bible--share Scriptures, and be involved in ESL workshops and training.
In many instances, my students become my friends and our relationship is maintained even after completion of the tutoring responsibilities.
