Lesson Plans

Get to know your teacher

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree for grades K-9 and a minor in music from Wesleyan University in 2003 and received my Special Education from Kansas State University in 2006.

Besides teaching special education, I have taught second grade and have been a reading specialist for the last four years.

I was born and raised on a farm in Nebraska but have lived in the Salina area for about 20 years.  I am married and have three wonderful boys, a daughter in-law and a beautiful granddaughter.  

I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, scuba diving and playing the piano.  

What students will learn in Title 1 Reading


During this year my students will increase their knowledge of phonics skills and will be able to apply those skills to words, become more fluent readers and will be able to comprehend what they read. 


Strategies for success


Outside of school students should be reading at least 20 minutes independently.

Ask questions about what they have read for comprehension.


Know the standards
