third grade/ primary reading intervention
I'm starting my 35th year of teaching. I've taught Kindergarten,
First Grade, Second Grade, Reading Recovery, and Learning Disabilities and
now Third Grade. I'm looking forward to this year, working with my new
students and parents. I moved to Indiana several years ago and enjoy living
in the woods in my log house with my husband, and two dogs, Katie and
Grainne,and two kittens, Max and Torti. I am sending my fourth and final
son off to college this fall to Indiana University.
I spent the summer reading, hiking, boating, and swimming.
The picture above was taken in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada at the
top of a mountain that I had ridden my bike up. The moose made all that hard
work worth it.
I believe that every child can be successful in school. It is my
responsibility to make sure that each student reaches his/her full
potential. I believe school should be a safe place for every child, a place
where each individual can become a confident learner. I have high
expectations for each child and know that he/she will learn to read, write,
and attain grade appropriate math skills. I believe that parents and
teachers are partners and that the success of each child depends upon
cooperation of all.
