My mission, motivated by my passion for literacy and my belief that all children can read and write, is to use best literacy practices to teach students the vital life skills of reading and writing. Because I believe in literacy success for all and that each child is an individual, I accept that it is my responsibility to teach each child the skills they need. I work with each child to tailor an education plan that will provide the remediation needed as well as progress their skills forward.
