About Mary

I taught sixth grade for 27 years. I work closely with both student and parent to establish strong study skills so learning can be achieved. I have been on most District committees and all committees within my school. I was Student Council Advisor for 12 years and have been a mentor for new and struggling teachers.

After retirement in 2006 I continued my education by completing my reading endorsement as a Reading Specialist K-12. I was hired by Mesa as a Math/Reading Interventionist for K-6.

After retirement I developed and taught reading for six more years K-6. I was the Dibels coordinator for all grades during that time. Since retiring a second time from MPS I now volunteer as a Reading Specialist administering Dibels. I test students for progress monitoring and benchmark throughout the year.

My years of teaching have been endorsed by parents, administration and colleagues. I am a nurturing yet structured teacher. I expect the student to be responsible once the foundation has been set.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Common Core

I was on the very first committee as we piloted the Arizona Standards. The committee correlated the Standards with our existing District curriculum. I was a classroom teacher for 27 years then a Math/Reading Specialist for an additional 6 years.

Elementary Math

I worked the past six years K-6 as a Reading Specialist (Interventionist). I was the Reading Specialist and coordinator for Dibels testing. I worked with classroom teachers who struggled developing and teaching curriculum. I worked with whole classroom, small group or individual students.

Phonics

In the Mesa Public School District, (Mesa, Arizona), I began a new phonics program in my last four years as a Reading Specialist. We administered phonic kits to all students third through sixth grade.

Reading

I am a Reading Specialist. I worked for six years after retirement using my reading endorsement K-12. I was the Dibels coordinator for the entire school. I developed and taught reading curriculum.

Study Skills

I have implemented several different study skills program over the years depending on the needs of the individual student. All students use a daily planner. The responsibility of the planner is the students, but daily communication between teacher and parent helps bridge the gap between home and school. I was a classroom teacher for 27 years then a Math/Reading Specialist for an additional 6 years.
