Hello!  I'm so excited that you are visiting my page.  I have been a teacher at Woods Intermediate for 9 years.  I am currently teaching Resource English Language Arts for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.  Before arriving at Woods, I taught for 4 years at Canton High School as Resource and Inclusion teacher.  I've also spent many years in private schools as both general education and special education teacher.  I am certified in All Level Language and/or Learning Disabled and Art, Core Subjects K-6, and a supplemental English as a Second Language.  I love teaching and I love children.  I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be than in a classroom surrounded by students.  This year I've been blessed with a new curriculum called Stevenson Language Skills Program.  This is the best curriculum I've used to date.  It breaks reading down to its most basic concepts and teaches phonics, spelling, and comprehension skills side-by-side from day one.  I am very excited to have this and I cannot wait to see our positive results at the end of this year.  My students are making steady progress already and they actually LOVE learning to read.  For these students, who've struggled with reading from Kindergarten on, this is revolutionizing.  Please feel free to contact me via email or schedule a meeting.  I'd be excited to share what we are doing here at Woods in our Resource English/Language Arts classroom.
