I am the Reading Coach at Neely Elementary. My job is to support student achievement by helping Neely students become proficient in reading and writing. I accomplish this goal by working with Neely's amazing teachers, helping them incorporate successful strategies that will make a difference for all our students. My goal is to support and collaborate with teachers on instructional practices, small group instruction, professional development, and data analysis to enhance all students' learning. I also assist in school wide DIBELS testing, reviewing data, and creating instructional groups. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful teachers, students, and families!
I am very fortunate to have been teaching here at Neely for the past 10 years. While here at Neely I have been a classroom teacher as well as the ELL Specialist before becoming the Reading Coach. I am thankful for the opportunity to support teachers and help all students become strong, confident readers. I am a proud graduate of Arizona State University! (Go Devils!!) I am married with three wonderful children, all who have attended Neely. We enjoy spending family time together outdoors, attending sporting events, and traveling.
