Welcome to Sixth Grade Reading! When I was in sixth grade, I received the award for reading the most books! I am very pleased to be the reading teacher at NPA. I’ve enjoyed teaching in Northern Arizona since 1983. My experience includes teaching elementary-high school, community college and university students. I am also involved in the art community of Flagstaff and enjoy integrating the arts into my lessons. I appreciate establishing a personal relationship with my students and their families. My husband and I enjoy hiking, kayaking, traveling and cooking. We love having our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren in Flagstaff as well. B.S. Elementary Education/Special Education, Eastern Michigan University, 1983. M. Ed. Curriculum and Instruction: Reading, Grand Canyon University, 2013.
