I am new to the Reading Team at Washington this year. I have taught mostly Social Studies in Saint Paul for almost 20 years. I recently completed the requirements to earn a Reading license. This is my first formal assignment to teach reading. However, having taught Social Studies for so many years, I was teaching reading in an informalway. In addition to my background in Social Studies I have a Technology Integration certificate, so I bring a lot of experience and ideas from those two areas into my reading classroom.
I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from Western Michigan University at Kalamazoo, and a Masters of Teaching and Learning through Winona State University. My course work for the Reading License was done through Hamline University, where I also earned a certificate in Technology Integration.
My interests include travel, bicycling and camping and spending time with my children and grandchildren.
