Welcome to Reading Club! I am so excited to be a part of your child's learning this year. Literacy and teaching are my greatest passions and I feel grateful to be a part of the McDowell team. I enjoy crafting individualized learning experiences to meet the needs of all my students. One of my goals is for each child to feel confident in taking risks in their learning while fostering an everlasting LOVE for reading!
I began my teaching career as a preschool teacher. It was then that I just knew that I wanted to be surrounded by young, inquiring minds for a long time! I have been in the education field for five years and I am excited about beginning my third year as a reading specialist at Hudson City Schools.
I view myself less of a teacher and more as a content facilitator and reflective practitioner. I am a graduate of Kent State University certified in K-3. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Reading Specialization at Kent State to continue delving into the ever-evolving world of literacy. My students are my "why" - the heart and center of all my work. I continue to strive to learn, reflect, and improve my teaching practices to provide them with the best possible learning experiences for them to not only grow - but bloom.
