Welcome to my blog!

I've been a public educator for almost 30 years.  I began during college as an assistant in kindergarten and after witnessing that first aha moment with a child I was hooked.

I have been an elementary classroom teacher, a Reading Recovery Teacher, and a Reading Specialist.

I'm passionate about teaching and continuously read research, attend conferences, and obtained a master's degree in education because early in my teaching career I came across a student I couldn't help. I tried everything I knew and I still couldn't help him.

Since that day I also began to collaborate with other teachers because teaching is impossible to do alone and we must do everything possible to help our students be successful.

I've learned so much from so many and from my own trial and error.  I want to share my knowledge with others because it's up to us to find the right way to teach them.

Thanks for reading!
