Professional development

Inspired Teacher Inspiring Readers

My Students

I teach at a Title I school where every child receives free lunch. Our school has one of the highest numbers of ELLs (English Language Learners) in our district. We have one of the largest student populations in the district, also.

My students SOAR to success every day!

I teach students that are eager to learn and love coming to school because of their growing passion for learning. I love reading and hope to be a role model to encourage the same love of reading in my students!

My Project

HelloLitCon provides teachers with low prep/high yield strategies that create stronger, more successful readers. This event prepares teachers to enter the classroom with a revamped repertoire of teaching strategies that enhance our students' skills as readers.

The event is bound to inspire!

During this event, I will not only gain reading strategies, but will learn to foster a positive reading culture and continue developing reading workshop and guided reading effective routines.

The founder of Hello Literacy, Jen Jones, is a highly-sought after professional development leader! I hope to have the privilege of attending this event to grow as a reading teacher!
