Welcome to The Brightly Balanced Classroom. Teaching children to read is my passion, and literacy is my jam. As a teacher, I live for the "click". You know that moment. The moment where balanced literacy instruction has paid off and students are fluent, joyful readers. 

I've spent over 12+ years teaching K-2, with a few years as a K-5 Reading Specialist. I have grown to love reading and all the challenges and accomplishments that come with it.
 
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction and Reading and I am also a National Board Certified teacher in the area of Reading.

Teaching young children to read can be confusing and challenging but it can always be MAGICAL, REWARDING and FUN. 

Over the years, I've helped hundreds of children become readers including my own child.

There is something extraordinary about watching your child learn to read and knowing you were a big part of that journey. And I want that for you!
