I am the Title I Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at Santa Fe. I have been teaching at Santa Fe since 1990. My first two years I taught 6th grade reading before moving to Title I Reading. Before moving to Oklahoma, I taught 4 years of 1st grade and 2 years of Title I Reading in Texas.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Supervision and Reading from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. I became Nationally Board Certified in Literacy in 2006. In 2009, I completed the school administration program at Oklahoma State University.
I love to teach and watch students improve their skills, not just in reading, but in life lessons. My wish for the students I see is that they become life long readers and learners.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and sons, reading, working in my yard and swimming.
