Teacher Expertise:
I hold a B.S. in Psychology, a Master's Degree in Education, and a Ph.D. in Education. I am a licensed k-8 teacher, a licensed Reading Specialist, and a certified ESL teacher.

I have taught children, adults, and my child throughout my life. I have worked as a tenured education professor, an elementary teacher, a reading specialist, and an ESL teacher. I love to read, and I love to work with children. I am delighted to be teaching on the Outschool platform, and I look forward to working with you and your child.
You do not need to purchase any books for this class or any subscriptions to any sites.  Students will be reading books on screen. However, you will need to purchase a small whiteboard and markers for students to use for some of our word activities.
(Please do not use paper and a pencil as it is very difficult for me to see their work on the screen.)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
 During a portion of the class, I will be sharing my screen so that children can watch phonics videos such as those on Youtube, HeidiSongs, and PhonicsGarden. Children are briefly watching these videos on my screen and you are not required to create an account for your children to watch these videos.
