I have been with the Mexico School District since 2001 as a Reading Specialist. I have worked at Mexico Elementary School, Mexico Middle School and for most of my career at Mexico High School. The favorite part of my job is seeing reluctant readers turn into successful readers. I use a combination of strategies such as Lindamood-Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing for Reading Comprehension, Scholastic Read 180 and Guided reading practices to accomplish this goal. My philosophy has always been that any reader at any time can become a successful reader!
