I'm excited to be supporting teachers and students this year as the JCPS Seondary Literacy Trainer. I will be providing on-going professional development for the reading and writing teachers at Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Lewis and Clark Middle School. My educational career began in the classroom as a sixth grade teacher and later as a second grade teacher. For the past 14 years I have been teaching and supporting teachers and students as a Reading Specialist and Instructional Coach for JCPS at Lawson Elementary, South Elementary, and Cedar Hill Elementary.
My husband and I just celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary in June and we have an adventurous, fun loving seven year old son. When I'm not at school, I love to be outdoors. You can catch me biking, running, hiking, reading and traveling during my free time!
