Trussville, AL

Reading Specialist



I have been in the educational arena for 23 years . I began as a 2nd grade teacher. After several years I earned my Educational Specialist degree in Leadership and Supervision. Soon after, I served as a Reading Coach . I remained in that position until I moved to Trussville. I began my career here as a Reading Interventionist. I enjoyed this position because I was able to work with the children who were falling behind in the classroom. My job at this time was to reinforce what the classroom teacher was teaching and focus on their weaknesses in hopes of catching them up before they fell farther behind. After about three years, a massive reduction was enforced; being new to the system, I was cut from that position and placed back in the classroom as a 3rd grade teacher. I remained in the classroom for 3 years. Currently, I am the ARI Reading Specialist at the same school. I work with 3rd grade teachers and students in the area of Reading. It is a joy sharing and helping teachers reach their highest potential, as well as helping the children to succeed.
