I am a Reading Specialist, and also have teaching certifications in Elementary Self Contained, Secondary English, ESL, Special Education, and as a Master Reading Teacher. I have a Bachelor's degree in English, Language Studies, from San Francisco State University and a Master's degree in Education, Literacy Studies, from University of Texas Arlington. I was trained in the Basic Language Skills program (BLS), which is the dyslexia program we use in elementary school, at Rawson Saunders Institute in Austin.
I have been married for twenty five years, and have two children who are both LISD graduates. One is a recent college grad and the other is a junior in college. My husband and I enjoy RV'ing, kayaking and hiking. I also am an avid reader, and am always looking for the next good book to read. I look forward to finding "just the right book" for your child, as well.
