Degrees and Certifications:
This is my sixth year at Wills Point Middle school and my fourth year teaching 5th-grade reading. I have been married for 29 years and we have two boys. Our youngest is a student at the high school and our oldest graduated in 2014. I have a BA in Special Education and an MS in Curriculum and Instruction. I coach Special Olympics swimming and used to coach my youngest's, basketball team. I enjoy swimming, reading, crocheting, painting, 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.
