Hello! A bit about me? Hmmmm, where to start? I am from Syracuse, NY and I have lived in the Chicagoland area since I graduated. I really like the area; however, I don't like the winters-I see a move to Florida in my future.... I have 3 children, 5 grandchildren, and 3 stepchildren! My husband and I also have three dogs that are the lights of our lives!

About My Classroom
My passion is teaching (as I am sure is yours). I only wish I had earned my degree years earlier! I currently teach reading at Harper High School in Chicago. We have been using READ180 since April of 2009.
My students love the program and even have friendly competitions with the software!
Experience and Training
I am a 2005 graduate of SUNY Oswego with a Bachelors Degree in Adolescence Education 7-12/English. I am currently attending Concordia University Chicago to earn my Masters Degree in Reading.
Why I Teach READ 180 and/or System 44
I teach READ 180 because I thoroughly believe in the elements of the program. Each part gives my students everything they need to succeed!
I also love that everything I need is right at my fingertips. I can monitor students more closely and nip any issues right away! The ability to group the students is essential to any reading program's success!
