This is my tenth year teaching in Reading Schools!  I have taught English/Language Arts for 9 years, and science for 2 years.  I grew up in Reading, and graduated from Reading High School in 2002.  I attended The Ohio State University, where I received my Bachelors of Science in Human Development and Family Sciences, with a minor in Middle Childhood Education.  I then attended Xavier University for graduate school, earning a teaching license in Language Arts and Science, as well as an endorsement as a Reading Specialist.  

I was fortunate to have wonderful teachers in this community, who instilled a love of learning, and helped me reach my goals adn dreams.  I have always LOVED to read and write.  When I was in seventh and eigth grade, I advanced to state in a competition called Power of the Pen, thanks to a special teacher that pushed me to be my best.  I was also chosen to read my speech at the Memorial Day service at Reading Cemetery my eighth grade year.  At Reading High School, I was also a writer and editor for the Devil's Advocate newspaper.  I am constantly reading for pleasure or research, and have enjoyed being in a book club for several years.  I try to convey to my students a love of reading, and the idea that books can open your mind, and take you to new places.  I share my belief with students that books can change your life, and help you grow to new heights.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching fourth grade, and I look forward to the journey of working together throughout the year to become better readers, writers, and thinkers!
