I had the pleasure of teaching first grade as a classroom teacher for five years before moving abroad to teach English as an Additional Language and Reading Support for two years in Santiago, Chile. My goal is to create flexible and strategic readers through interactive and engaging lessons.
I earned a bachelor's of science in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Elementary and Middle School Education from Longwood University in Farmville, VA. Additionally, I earned a Master's of Education in Reading from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. I currently hold a Virginia Collegiate Professional teaching license with endorsements to teach Elementary pk-6, Middle School English 6-8, Reading Specialist K-12, and English as an Additional Language K-12.
