I have been in education for 21 years. I taught first grade for 12 years and was a staff developer for a different district for 4 years. One of the most fun parts of my career was teaching first grade students who struggled in reading to enjoy and be able to read. I did this with the Reading Recovery Program. I became a Reading Interventionist/Literacy Coach for 5 years in the Granite School District. I have been privileged to be at Westbrook either part or full time for all 5 of those years. I received my Bachelors of Education from BYU, sorry Ute fans. I have a Master of Education from Southern Utah University and I have four teaching endorsements which include English as a Second Language, Technology, Reading Level One, and Reading Level Two. The first three from Southern Utah University and the Level Two Reading from Utah State. When I was teaching first grade, I knew I needed to know more to be successful as a reading teacher. It was definitely worth it getting more education on the teaching of reading. I loved first graders and have since learned to love all the grades. All ages bring varied and interesting experiences to a classroom. I will have been married to my husband for 40 years on October 8 of this year, 2016. We have six children and 10 grandchildren. I love reading and I absolutely enjoy cooking. My favorite genre is cookbooks, and then historical fiction.
