I consider myself an energetic RtI Interventionist specializing in reading interventions and instruction. Currently, I am working on a Master's degree through Armstrong University located Savannah, GA. I am a highly innovative and resourceful education professional who assists teachers in identifying students with reading deficits and possible learning disabilities. Training other teachers in the art of guided reading and close reading is another area I am passionate about as I strive help my fellow colleagues succeed to the best of their abilities.
