About My Classroom
I am lucky in so many ways, and my classroom is one of them. Construction on our middle school was completed in December of 2009. I have a beautiful classroom that is more than adequate for our READ 180 set up. I strive to keep it decorated in a fun and inviting way. In my room there are lots of students recognition pieces and I also try to keep lots of Eagle Pride memorabilia up - GO EAGLES!!!
Experience and Training
2019-2020 is my 12th year teaching. I LOVE it! I believe I have been given some great training by Scholastic and I learned TONS of extra stuff at the 2011, 2012, & 2014 Summer Institutes, as well as the Model Schools Conference in 2015, 2016, & 2017. I never cease to be amazed at all the resources I have access to with the program.
Why I Teach READ 180 and/or System 44
I was chosen to teach READ 180 before I even knew what it was. It has been the greatest professional gift I have been given. I receive so much enjoyment from seeing the faces of my students as they begin to understand what they are reading. I have had an All Star/180 Award winner in 2012, 2018, & 2019.
