Learning Specialist

And now three remain:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.   1 Corinthians 13:13

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This is my 16th year in education and my 4th year at VCES. My teaching career began in Ohio where I grew up, and over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work as a Learning/Intervention Specialist as well as a third grade, fourth grade, and advanced math teacher. I am excited to be able to work with many of our students in grades K-5 in my role as full time Learning Specialist.

One of my primary responsibilities is to work with students, families, and teachers, as well as our Learning Support Team (Carla Adler, Sue Yockey, Kathryn Welsh), to find ways to help students reach their fullest potential. This may include reviewing and writing Individual Learning Plans or Support Plans, observing students in the classroom, meeting with parents to discuss students’ needs, identifying best practices and research based learning strategies, and much more!

If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress in school, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
