I teach Early Literacy Initiative (ELI), Reading Recovery and Reading Support to K-5 students.  I love Deer Run and I am proud to be a parent of two Deer Run Students of my own.  Our students are so fortunate to be a part of this incredible learning environment.  Deer Run is a prime example of the Dublin Difference.  It truly is a great place to be!
Always feel free to contact me with questions at  I am happy to answer any questions that you might have!

~Sometimes what we call "failure" is really just that necessary struggle called learning.


ELI is an additional time model for Kindergarten students who meet certain assessment criteria to spend a little extra time learning phonological awareness, letter sounds, and early literacy skills at school.
