Born in Des Moines, Iowa, I grew up in South Dakota & North Carolina before coming to Mississippi College as an undergraduate. Most of my professional life has been spent in the classrooms of Jackson Public Schools where I worked as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery teacher, Early Literacy Specialist, Instructional Specialist in the Curriculum Department, and Lead Teacher. I was one of the first 100 National Board Certified Teachers in Mississippi and have served as a mentor to others who are going through the National Board process. I have worked as the Site Manager for the NBPTS Scoring Site and as an assessor for the Disney American Teaching Awards.
I particularly enjoy working with children who are "at risk." I am committed to seeing that all children can read strategically. Over and above that, I want to see children enjoying reading.
