Welcome back to Stono Park! I am looking forward to working with our 2nd-5th graders on their reading development this year. I have been teaching since 2002 and I have a Masters Degree in Education. My hope is to create a safe and inviting space where my kids feel empowered and confident as learners. My class motto is EFFORT WORKS and I encourage students to come prepared with their A-game. Kids who work hard and practice reading every day become great readers... great readers can learn anything and they change the world. I can't wait to see what our kids will do to change the world!
