I am the Reading Specialist at Lincoln Terrace Elementary. I received my bachelor's degree from Concord University in Education with concentrations in Business and Library Science.  This university is in Athens, WV which is also where I grew up and lived until moving to Roanoke.  I began my teaching career in Roanoke City in 1997 at Preston Park Elementary School where I was Library Media Specialist for 23 years.  I gained National Board Certification in 2012.   After receiving my master's degree in Education from ODU with focus in Reading, I transferred to Lincoln Terrace.  This is my third year at this school; however, I have taught in Roanoke City for 26 years.  I look forward to meeting each child and assisting them to develop a love of reading.
