5th Grade Reading & Language Arts
It is my goal to help kids learn to love reading. If I can get kids to love to read, it will open up so many opportunities for their love of learning. Reading is the corner stone of all learning.

Teaching gives me the opportunity to make learning fun. My favorite thing about teaching is inspiring kids to find new and exciting ways to learn.
