Degrees and Certifications:
This is my fourth year at Wills Point Middle school and my second year teaching 5th grade reading. I have been married for 27 years and we have two boys. Our youngest is a student at the junior high and our oldest graduated in 2014. I have my bachelors degree in Special Education and am working on my masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I coach Special Olympics swimming and used to coach my youngest basketball team. I enjoy swimming, reading, crocheting, going to the movies and playing Minecraft.
Reading is my passion. My oldest son has down syndrome and has struggled with reading. I was told I needed to give up and come to terms with the fact that he would never read. I refused to do that and I'm happy to say that his reading is measurable now. He loves books and reading. I believe all children have so much to give and offer the world and strive to help them know how incredible they are. I want to make reading fun and love to help my students find books they can fall in love with.
