I love teaching and working with children. I truly believe that is why I was put on this planet. I graduated from Southern Illinois University in 1995 with a degree in Elementary Education. I have taught all grades K-6 but most of my experience was in 1st grade before becoming a reading specialist 4 years ago.

I loved teaching 1st grade and most specially reading. I believe reading is the key to academic success. I know first hand the confusion and frustration that learning to read can cause. I remember being in class as a child and being scared that I would be called on to read aloud. It seemed so easy to my classmates and yet I struggled. My youngest daughter had the same struggles. As a parent and a teacher that had taught so many children to read, I was at a loss at what else to do to help her. So I went back to the university and finished my reading specialist certificate and attended a Orton-Gillingham training that changed everything. I gained major insight on specific techniques and strategies that help struggling readers. I have spent the last five years implementing and perfecting the presentation of these techniques.

I graduated from Southern Illinois University in 1995 with a Bachelors' in Elementary Education. Over the years I have taught every grade K-6 but most of my years were in 1st grade. After completing Master's level coursework in 2016, I started working as a Reading Specialist with students Kindergarten to fifth grade.

I have 25 years of teaching experience in the public school classroom. I have developed methods students from experience. I utilize a variety of resources and materials depending on each students individual needs. I have specialized training in the Multi-sensory/Orton-Gillingham Reading Intervention. I have used it in one-on-one session and in the regular classroom setting with amazing results.

I use my Orton/Gillingham training to effectively teach reading. I use multi-sensory instruction to teach sounds and words. Students can benefit from exp
