I am honored to serve as the reading specialist at East Smiths Station Elementary School. I have been with the Lee County School District since 2001. I have 17 years experience as a fourth grade teacher. I found that during my tenure as a classroom teacher, I delighted in opportunities to work with students in the area of reading, writing, and grammar. Determining the individual instructional needs of students was an area that I found to be intriguing. This led me to my current position of reading specialist.
As the reading specialist, I am able to work with teachers in determining students' individual reading needs. We work together to provide specially designed reading instruction that will help students achieve their reading goals.
