I have been a K-2 teacher for over 20 years.  My expertise is in reading intervention and I have worked in that area for the last 8 years.  I am very passionate about helping children learn how to read and especially passionate about helping those students who are struggling and need an out of the box way to learn how to become successful readers!  I take a very hands on multi-sensory approach to learning the basic foundational skills  and above all we make it fun!!!!

A white board and dry erase marker or paper and pencil to write with. Optional magnetic letters and magnetic board.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
