Niwot Elementary School comprises of my second family.  I am honored to be a part of this close-knit community. Being the literacy instructor at NES brings me great joy. I support students who need a more explicit, systematic and sequential method when they learn to read. I follow a specific practice to activate their learning. This helps them break the code and master the rules and patterns in our language.  Movement and multisensory approaches are incorporated in my lessons to help students own their reading skills. Teaching children to read is one of my passions. I look forward to teaching my 22nd year at Niwot Elementary School!
