  • “The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change.”  Heraclitus of Ephesus (c. 500 BCE) 


    “Change” has been my mode of philosophy towards my career in education as of late.  I had no idea what becoming a “Reading Interventionist” would entail when approached in the spring of 2017 by Mr. Marolt wondering if I would be open to a “change”.   After a brief description, a more in depth conversation, and much thought, I agreed, “Sure, why not.” Music has always been my passion but so has the written word.  I am honored to be part of a program that what I envision to empower the children of our community to become more proficient readers and learners.  It is truly a journey of a lifetime in my educational career.  I am enjoying the newness, the overall challenge of helping create something successful at Challenger and the change.


    In 1997, my journey at Challenger Elementary began as a Music Specialist.  I was in this position until the fall of 2017,  at which time I became the Reading Specialist and assisted in implementing the PRESS Reading Program.
