• I began teaching at West View in 2002 as the Title I reading teacher for middle school. I taught the Title I language arts classes until 2013, at which time I began teaching the reading intervention classes. The reading intervention classes allow me to share my love for reading with students in an environment that helps them become stronger readers and thinkers. 

    Some of my favorites...

    *Book - I have way too many, but if I had to choose... Tuck Everlasting & the Harry Potter series are some of them. 

    *Classroom routine - Classroom Book-A-Day!! I love picture books & this routine is the perfect way to start class.

    *Free time fun  - I like to take road trips, go on backroad drives, and camp in our vintage camper. 

    *Place to visit - I love to visit National Parks. I haven't been to any of the major ones out west (Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Yosemite) & hope to visit them soon! Hawaii is probably my favorite state I've visited. Hopefully I'll get to visit all 50 states. 

    *Current project - I'm trying to read a book about each president of the United States.
