Meet the Teacher

My teaching career started at Perryville Elementary School in 2002. For eleven years, I had the privilege of working with first graders who were learning how to read. In 2013, I joined the Title 1 team. Since reading was such an integral part of teaching first grade becoming a reading teacher seemed a natural fit!
