Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be a part of the opening staff at John Warner Middle School. I've taught at both the elementary and middle school levels for 17 years--12 as a classroom teacher and 5 as a homeschool mom. I finished my Master's Degree in Literacy with a Reading Specialist Emphasis in 2016 began working as a Reading Specialist in 2018 when my family and I moved to Sturgeon, Missouri from northeast Indiana.
I enjoy hiking and exploring Missouri's great state parks with my family when we have free time. When I have time to chill at home, I love to go on great adventures and meet amazing people while curled up on my couch with a great book. I am excited to help hesitant or struggling readers fall in love or grow in their love of books—and the sense of accomplishment that comes from overcoming challenging subjects. Whether or not you are in one of my classes, I am here for you! Let me know how I can help or just stop by to chat about your favorite book!
