I am a graduate of SUNY Potsdam where I attained a bachelors degree in childhood education and a masters degree as a literacy specialist. Working with children has always been a passion of mine. I have experience working with children from kindergarten to sixth grade through my student teaching and practicum experiences.I am a confident teacher working with any grade level! As a literacy specialist I am familiar with using various literacy assessments such as the DIBELS/DAZE, DRA2, and the LLI program. I am currently a substitute for the Newburgh School District where I am continually focusing on my teaching skills and learning from each class I enter. I believe that a successful teacher never stops learning from her peers or students.
