I am currently a Reading Coach at Wawasee Community Schools located in northern Indiana. After spending hours of playing school in the basement with neighborhood kids and dreaming of being a teacher, I walked into my own classroom in 1977. My undergraduate work was completed at Bethel College. I completed my graduate work at Ball State University. The learning process is a journey…wonderful students and colleagues have kept me traveling. Besides having a passion for reading, I enjoy flower gardening, researching family history, creating art, exploring places, and spending time with my family.
