I grew up in Canada and my first degree was from Mt. St. Vincent Women's University in Nova, Scotia Canada. I received a B.A. in political science with a double minor in Women's Studies, and Psychology. From there I moved to the United States where I started teaching and earned my Masters degree in Education, Special Education from Cambridge College. I went on to complete an ED.S online with Old Dominion University in Virginia, with the hopes of doing my doctorate. I stopped my doctorate before completing my dissertation because I wanted to do other things. I may go back some day but for now, I'm happy with things as they are.
I love teaching reading the most, perhaps because I am such an avid reader and feel that it is a wonderful skill to have. I have worked in other subjects such as Writing, and Social Studies, but I am most passionate with teaching reading, and helping students to overcome their struggles with that subject.
I have been teaching for all of my adult life and started when I was 17 years old as a tutor for older adults who struggled with literacy skills. This ignited my passion for teaching. My love of teaching has stayed with me for my entire life and though it has been tested over time, I have never thought of doing any other job. My philosophy includes believing that all people are deserving of an education that can help enrich their lives and advance their skills.
My life involves enjoying writing, reading, animals and nature. Those are the things that have helped me cope with things beyond my control, as well as provided much needed alternatives during this time of crisis.
