Subjects Taught


I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in education, and I am certified by the state of North Carolina in reading. 


I am in my eighth year at Hearne as a reading teacher. Prior to working at Hearne as a RITS teacher, I was a classrooom teacher for more than twenty years.


Teaching reading is a perfect career for me as I am an avid reader. I tried to instill a love of reading in both of my daughters, and they both are avid readers as well. One of them actually has her master's degree in English literature! Helping students become more competent readers is so important to me because reading impacts every aspect of life. Building on a strong foundation is essential, so I work tirelessly on helping the students use reading strategies to decode words and comprehend what they read. I also work on written comprehension as well.
