I am a 1988 graduate of the University of Maine, Farmington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, grades K-8. My experience in education is diverse, with over fifteen years of classroom experience. I love working at Mountain View School and am excited to be teaching Literacy and Math intervention for grades K-4 in the Title I room!
Assisting and equipping students to reach their academic potential is my main objective as an educator, but I would be amiss to think that could be done without also pouring time and energy into reaching the hearts of the students as well.

Maine DOE’s Literacy for ME launches summer reading resources
As the school year comes to an end, many of us are thinking about long hot days and fair weather fun. We may not be thinking about how much literacy learning our children gained during the school year or how much could be lost during the break from school. This loss is often called the “summer slide” and can be avoided with a little planning and support from the Maine DOE and Maine Public Libraries.
The Department’s Literacy for ME initiative has launched a webpage to provide families with resources to support summer reading and other activities that enhance typical summer experiences and prevent the summer slide. Do you know how to choose books that your kids can read independently? Do you have a book you can read aloud as a family? Are you planning a long car trip this summer? How about planning some writing activities to capture the fun and adventure?
Visit the Summer Literacy page within the resources section of the Maine DOE’s Literacy for ME web pages. You will find methods of selecting texts, writing ideas, discussion prompts, and other helpful resources.
