I am extremely excited continue serving the outstanding staff of Plat teachers and families in the role of Reading Specialist. This is my second year in the Richfield School District; however I come with 7 years of classroom teaching experience and 5 years of experience as a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach. I graduated from UW-Oshkosh in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education PK-8. I have a Masters degree in Reading with my Reading Teacher and Reading Specialist licenses along with a license in administration. This education and experience has prepared me well to serve in this role as Reading Specialist here at Plat School. I am beyond excited to continue to serve the students, parents and teachers this school year!
My husband, Matt and I live in Hartford with our three boys
Brayden, Tyler, and Wyatt. I enjoy traveling, spending time with family, running, biking, and of course reading.
I look forward to getting to know students and families throughout the school year. I will be working with teachers and students in the classroom as well as with small groups of students. If you have any questions regarding your child's reading or writing development please feel free to contact me. I will be updating my webpage with tips for reading with your children and strategies to use at home so stay tuned.
