Reading Coach and Reading Specialist
My goal as Canyon Rim's Reading Coach and Specialist is to support classroom teacher instruction and student learning, promote fidelity and effectiveness of standards-based core ELA instruction, while strengthening quality interventions and differentiated instruction, resulting in high quality literacy instruction for all students.
I am so excited to be at Canyon Rim this year. I have been an elementary educator for 23 years and have a passion for teaching children to read. I have a wonderful husband of 23 years, who is an educator for Mesa Public Schools, and two sons. My oldest son is a former Highland High graduate and is currently attending the University of Arizona. My youngest son is a senior at Highland High School. As a family we love to watch sports, movies, and spend time together.
