Bio

I was born to share knowledge with others. After graduation from Central Michigan University with my Bachelor of Science in biology and environmental studies I taught at a science camp in South Carolina. It was here that I discovered that teaching gives me a sense of purpose. I returned home to Michigan and completed my Master of Arts in Education program with certification at the University of Michigan.

I was born to share knowledge with others. After graduation from Central Michigan University with my Bachelor of Science in biology and environmental studies I taught at a science camp in South Carolina. It was here that I discovered that teaching gives me a sense of purpose. I returned home to Michigan and completed my Master of Arts in Education program with certification at the University of Michigan.

After certification, I began my teaching career in kindergarten and it was amazing to be a part of these young learners journey. It also became clear that there was a strong need for more support for students that struggled. I returned to school to pursue my endorsement in learning disabilities. In order to earn my learning disabilities endorsement, I scrutinized learning styles and best practices. I now have 8 years of using those best practices to help my students grow as learners. I love to show students that learning is fun, have them see and feel success, and become invested in their own learning. I have worked with children from kindergarten through 8th grade. I work closely with data. I analyze data and use it to monitor my students’ learning and guide my planning. I am skilled at providing continuous reinforcement of skills for struggling learners and moving advanced learners on to more complex concepts and deeper understanding.

I have taught elementary math for 8 years in small groups and one-on-one. I have a strong knowledge of the different math programs used in schools. I am aware of their strengths and weaknesses. I am an expert at targeting the skills an individual child needs and scaffolding lessons to build on previously taught material. I use a diverse approach that includes hands-on manipulatives, real world application, paper/pencil, and technology.

I have studied and been trained in many reading programs and interventions. I utilize the reading intervention strategies and programs daily to build reading fluency and comprehension in struggling readers. I monitor students
