I have a strong interest in reading 95% of our kindergarten students are reading
by year’s end—in 2021 I implemented my phonemic awareness and reading
techniques during the summer to a kindergarten student and successfully
prepared them for first grade by summer’s end.
I have a true passion for working with our youngest learners!! Helping each child
progress in all areas of their development—academic, social, language, and motor—
is a challenge that I am honored to accept daily. I strive to create a community
of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment. Thank you for
sharing your precious children with us.
