Welcome to Title 1 Literacy Intervention Groups!
I am a Reading Specialist; one of 4 Reading Teachers for East Elementary.
I have been in the Jefferson City District for 17 years. This is my 6th year at East. I have also been a Reading teacher at Belair and Southwest (when it was an elementary building). Lawson and Callaway Hills. I am enjoying my 32nd year of teaching!
I have taught 2nd grade and Reading at Ashland and New Bloomfield before coming to stay at Jefferson City. I have a Master's degree in Reading and a Reading Recovery certificate.
I was trained as a Reading Recovery teacher in 2003 and continue to receive instruction in the art of teaching reading every month at professional development sessions.
My husband Jim and I have been blessed with 2 children and 2 granddaughters! We have 2 dogs that provide many fun stories that get my students talking about animals they know.
I LOVE my job and find building relationships with my students and their families very rewarding!
I look forward to helping your child be the BEST reader they can be!
