I am happy to be working as the dyslexia teacher here at Evans Elementary. I was a charter member when Evans opened and taught on the 3rd grade team from 2008 until 2015. I am a Certified Academic Language Therapist and a Licensed Dyslexia Practitioner. I am passionate about teaching reading and always striving to help students be excited about reading while helping them develop good reading habits and strategies.
I was born and raised in Canada but moved to Allen in 1996 with my husband and two children. I have a degree in Sociology from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, as well as a teaching degree from the Institute of Child Study at the University of Toronto, Canada. I am a certified teacher in Canada and Texas.
In my spare time I like to read, scrapbook, boat, travel and spend time with my family.
