Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching for 23 years. My teaching history consists of 2nd-4th grades, reading recovery, literacy coach/strategist for elementary and SOI/IPP lab instructor. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading 1st-8th from Texas State University. I have graduate hours in Reading, and Gifted Education from North Texas State, and a Reading Recovery Certification from Texas Women’s University.
SOI/IPP Bridges Lab class is designed to strengthen and integrate visual focusing skills, auditory and memory attention, integrate sensory skills, and train learning abilities. Students are screened and assessed to determine strengths and weaknesses. Individual plans are generated and students attend the lab for 45 minutes twice each week until they successfully complete the plan! Bridges is to the brain/classroom, like a gym is to your muscles…. Who couldn’t use some extra brainpower?
