My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

My first job out of college was a reading teacher in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I taught for one year and then we moved to Longmont, Colorado.  I taught Preschool for 3 years. Then I moved up to Kindergarten and taught for 4 years. I have also taught beginning Spanish.

About My Classroom: 

I work with small groups of students to reinforce reading skills. My lessons are structured so the students know what to expect each day. We work hard, but I also make reading fun. I have a great relationship with my students.
