Currently, I am the Reading Specialist at Queen Anne's County High School. I have been the specialist for ten years. My goal as the reading specialist is to improve a student's word attack, comprehension, and/or fluency skills. I am certified in several reading interventions: Corrective Reading, Lindamood Bell (LiPS), Wilson Reading Program, Read Live, Read 180, SOAR, and Stevenson. Also, I teach English I and English II.
For the first 19 years of teaching, I worked with special education students ranging from learning disabilities to intellectual disabilities in Anne Arundel County Schools. Before coming to Queen Anne's, I taught at Stevensville Middle School for six years as a special educator. I also was the Individual Education Plan (IEP) Coordinator.
Personally, I am married, and I have two grown daughters. I also have a chocolate Labrador named Paisley. I live on Kent Island.
