Class Experience

Students will be able to use text evidence to make an inference around the characters' feelings, traits, motivation, and/or the story's conflict. 

I am a certified New York State teacher who loves teaching students to become better readers, while inspiring them to love reading at the same time!  I have my Bachelor's Degree in Childhood and Special Education and my Master's Degree in Literacy.  Before choosing to be a stay-at-home mom, I worked in a public school as a second grade teacher, third grade teacher, and reading specialist for kindergarten-fourth grade.   In addition to teaching the typical public school curriculum, I have taught students with disabilities and 504 plans, prepared third and fourth grade students for state testing, and taught English Language Learners. Currently, I am an online ESL teacher and a college professor who teaches undergraduate and graduate students how to become excellent teachers and literacy specialists.  I hope to see your student in my classroom!
