About Suzanne

I am currently in my 25th year of teaching. I have taught Kindergarten and First grade. I enjoy teaching reading and math. I am highly trained in reading intervention, phonics instruction, and hands on math teaching techniques.

I enjoy assessing students reading and math levels and then designing individual programs for each child to help them reach their individual educational goals.
I believe learning should be fun and love to see the excitement in my students as they develop a love for learning!

I am trained in hands-on math instruction.
I have over 80 hours of post graduate training in math instruction. I teach math through the use of math manipulatives while focusing on building number sense.

I have extensive training in the Alabama Reading initiative Program. I have 25 years of experience in phonics and reading instruction and small group reading intervention techniques.

I have extensive training in common core instruction and currently design my lessons in reading and math based on the common core standards.

In addition to teaching Kindergarten and first grade, I have taught summer school intervention programs and after school reading and math programs.

I assess students in phonics, determine what skills need to be focused on and then develop an individualized program for each student to help them achieve success.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you and your child to further discuss my qualifications and how I might be of help!
