Hi!  I am a literacy specialist teaching in upstate New York.  I have been teaching for more than 20 years.  I have taught Kindergarten and 2nd grade and I am also a trained Reading Recovery teacher.  My year in training was eye-opening for me and by far the best professional development I have ever had.  While working as a Reading Recovery teacher/literacy specialist I have also been,  a literacy coach and an instructional coach.  I am a National Board Certified teacher who learned a lot from going through the certification process and encourage others to go for it! I feel very blessed that I get to go to work and spend my days doing something that I love!

Greetings! I have spent the last seventeen years as a certified literacy specialist in upstate New York, working primarily with K-2 teachers and students, although I have experience throughout K-5. As a literacy specialist I design and deliver intensive and individualized instruction for the most fragile readers and writers. I have been a trained Reading Recovery teacher for the past 14 years, and, like Rhonda, feel as though that training was, and continues to be, the most valuable training I will ever receive. I have also spent many years as a literacy and instructional coach and have dabbled in consulting. Working with teachers and designing dynamic professional development opportunities has always been something that I greatly enjoy and from which I have learned the most.
