Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the start of a new school year! This year marks my eighteenth year teaching at New Albany. During my teaching career, I have taught second grade, special education, reading intervention, and have been an instructional literacy coach. The one thing that has remained a constant during my teaching career is my love for teaching reading and writing. I graduated from the University of Findlay with a double major in Elementary and Special Education. I also have my Master’s Degree in Curriculum Development and Literacy Education from Ashland University. Additionally, I have my Reading Endorsement and completed an extensive Literacy Collaborative training for intermediate grades at The Ohio State University. In 2010, I obtained my Master Teacher designation.
This year I will be supporting your child through supplemental reading intervention. I will be working closely with your child’s ELA teacher to ensure your child is progressing academically and reaching his/her fullest potential. I look forward to an exciting year and getting to know all of you!
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have three wonderful children who keep me busy. Isabella is eight, Sophia is six, and Griffin is two. My husband Corey, is also a teacher. As a family we enjoy playing and attending sporting events, reading, being outdoors, and helping others. Children are very important to me and that is why I am so fortunate to be able to work with your child this year. I am grateful to have a job that allows me to inspire students each day. Here’s to a great year!
