I have been teaching young readers for almost 25 years and have a passion for helping children lead literate lives. I believe that the relationship that your child and I develop as student and teacher is paramount to his/her literacy growth. My certifications and special training include literacy K-12, special education, Reading Recovery, Just Words (from Wilson reading,) and school administration. I use a variety of teaching tools, from all of these areas of study, based on your child's changing needs. My goal is to help your child grow as a literate individual by partnering with you and your child's classroom teacher to help your child reach his or her greatest potential as a reader and writer. Together we can foster a love of literacy! Please let me know how I may support you in this important area of your child's learning.
