Her team has won the “best team” award in 2018 and all of  her students have moved up 2 or more grade levels in reading. Her love for reading  is evident in her teaching, students, and classroom culture. She has created a reading corner for students to enjoy and constantly encourages students to find a love for reading.

Her favorite quote is “First you must learn how to read then you read to learn.” as well as “Everytime you turn a page a tree smiles because it knows there’s life after death!”
