I began my teaching career as a K-6 day-to-day and long-term substitute in the Lehigh Valley. I taught ESL to students in grades K-3 in Chester, PA for one year. I have been teaching in Exeter Township School District since 2014 as a reading intervention specialist and English as a second language teacher.
I have been married to my husband, Bob, since 2016. We have two sons, Mason and Tyler. I enjoy watching Philadelphia sports, spending time with my family, and reading.
What can you do at home to support your child's reading?
1. Let your children choose their own reading material, because choice helps motivate readers. Incorporate their interests and hobbies into their book selections.
2. Set goals and reward reading with more reading. Take your child to the library regularly.
3. Let your kids see you read for pleasure everywhere you go (home, doctor's office, vacation, etc.).
4. Encourage your older children to read to their younger siblings.
5. Make reading together fun and memorable. Be sure to set aside time each day for independent reading. Twenty minutes of reading each day can greatly improve your child's skills and habits.
6. Create loving associations with books and reading.
7. Limit television, video game, tablet, and phone viewing in order to make time for other activities, such as reading.
