Subject or Grade:
Literacy Coach/Title 1 Reading
Here at Harris I wear two hats during the day! I spend half of my day working with students in K-3rd grade as a Title 1 reading specialist. I work with our Title 1 students in small groups (1:5 ratio) for 30 minutes, 5 days a week. During this intervention time, we focus on the 5 areas of reading and all instruction is tailored to meet their needs. We utilize several research based reading programs during this time.
The other half of my day is spent working with teachers and supporting them with reading instruction through modeling, co-teaching, and observations. My role as a literacy coach allows me the opportunities to be in all of our K-3rd grade classrooms getting to know our Harris Hawks!
Hello and welcome to my webpage! I am extremely passionate about all students having equal educational opportunities and helping others become strong, confident readers! I have been working in education for 9 years now. I spent the first 4 years of my career teaching 2nd grade in a small district here in Arizona. I then moved over to the Gilbert area and began working at Harris Elementary as a Literacy Coach. My hobbies include spending time with my husband, two dogs, and close friends/family. I enjoying reading during my free time and I am always on the hunt for my next favorite book.
