Reading is filled with excitement, exploring and risk-taking!
After studying abroad in Wales and finishing my degree at Ohio Wesleyan University in Early Childhood Education I started my career in Dublin Ohio at a Goddard Preschool School. Shortly after in 2005 I started teaching for Mount Vernon City Schools. My first four years in the district I taught the Extended Kindergarten Program. After that I taught First grade at East Elementary for two years. Then I moved back down to Kindergarten for nine years. Next I decided to start a new adventure as a Reading Specialist.
As each year ends and a new one begins my goal as a Reading Specialist is to inspire and instill the joy of learning in each child! I hope every child continues to have joyful and amazing memories that will last a life time!
