About Me

 Hey, my name is Marie and I am a literacy coach in a K-2 school.  I have been an educator since 1992.  I started out teaching in the regular classroom.  I have taught kindergarten through 4th grade.  The one thing that I have enjoyed the most is looping with students from one grade to the next.  I have done that 3 times…2 times as a classroom teacher and once as a literacy coach.  It is a very powerful way to learn how children truly develop as readers and writers. I have been a literacy coach for the past 5 years.   I use a balanced literacy framework and believe that all children can learn to read and write when given the opportunity. 

I have a B.S. in Elementary Education with a K-12 reading certification and I am working on my M.A.E.D. in Reading Ed…I will graduate in Dec. 2008 :o)  I earned my undergrad degree, and I am doing my graduate work at East Carolina University…Go Pirates!
