About me

Industry Education
Occupation 5th grade teacher
Location CT, United States
Introduction I have been teaching for 15 years and have been teaching 5th grade for the past 7 years. Before that, I was a 4th grade teacher, a literacy coach, and a Reading and Language Arts Consultant in my school district. No matter which position I am in, my love for reading and writing never change. I teach in a TCRWP affiliated district and attend the TC Saturday Reunions and summer institutes whenever I can! I love sharing my passion for literacy with new teachers and my colleagues as well as instilling the love for reading and writing in my students each year. My goal is for students to become life-long readers and writers as well as reflective learners.
Interests Reading children's books, teaching, shopping, running, and reading professional blogs/books
