Welcome to Title 1 Reading

Welcome to Title 1 Reading at Alta Elementary School! Students in Kindergarten through 4th grade are served in our Title 1 Reading program. I am excited to help children become lifelong readers and literate individuals!

I am a 1993 graduate of Buena Vista University with a BA in elementary education and a reading endorsement. I am married and have lived in Alta since 1984. Both of my children graduated from Alta High School. Reading and helping students achieve have always been passions of mine.

If you ever have any questions regarding your child's reading, please feel free to contact me at
