I am excited to be the Reading Specialist at West Wing! Teaching children to read is my absolute favorite part of being a teacher. I am proud to have been at West wing School since we opened the doors! Prior to Reading, I taught Kindergarten here for 8 years.
I have also taught 1st, 3rd and 4th Grades at other schools in the district. In addition, I have taught classes at the Universtity of Phoenix for adults studying to become teachers.
I have a Bachelor's Degree from ASU and my Master's Degree from NAU. I have my Reading Endorsement, Early Childhood Endorsement, SEI Endorsement, and Gifted Endorsement.
I am married with 2 children and I am so proud to bring my son and daughter to West Wing school to learn at the BEST school in the district!
During the time of Distance Learning, I will be adding some suggestions for activities to keep practicing reading skills weekly. I encourage all families to take some time while we are all at home to READ! Read books independently, to each other and you can even visit websites like StorylineOnline.net where people read stories to you.
Just keep READING! Reading is a great way to find new and exciting adventures while we are all at home!
