I come to the education discipline as a reading instructor and director of field experiences after a career as a teacher and elementary school principal in Milwaukee, Wis.

My love of reading instruction began when I was fortunate to work with renowned people in reading, namely Ken and Yetta Goodman and Dorothy Watson. I bring their philosophy of developmental reading and my own passion to imbue our students with a sense of the magic that reading is in the lives of young children.

My courses are filled with a blend of content, teaching methods, classroom management and guidance to help students find their own professional voice.
