As a child, I loved reading and writing. My passion for learning and supporting others in reaching their potential grew into a career. I still love it over 20 years later.
I have worked with a wide range of students from elementary through adult, including those who are struggling, gifted, ESOL, have learning or physical disabilities.
I recently read The Hate U Give with a student as part of her summer reading. It was gratifying discussing the book with her and supporting her assignments relating to this engaging and current novel.
