About Me

I went from classroom teacher to
online reading coach.

Curious about who I am?

Well, first and foremost, I'm a mom of two awesome kids and two furry four-legged friends. Before becoming an online reading coach, I spent a decade as a teacher in the classroom.


Now, onto other important stuff - my passion! Reading, of course! And not just teaching it, but I also love getting lost in a good book. My kids always find it amusing when I say, "Just one more chapter," and I even have a t-shirt that says it. So, if you see me wearing it, you'll know what's up!

fun facts about me...

+ I have a Master's degree in Reading, Writing, and Literacy.
+ I love creating educational resources that make learning fun.
+ When it comes to snacks, cereal is my all-time favorite!

Curious about how The Monster Crew came to be?

Well, I was organizing my bookshelf after watching The Home Edit on Netflix (love it!), when I thought, 'Wouldn't it be nice if teaching reading was this organized for parents, instead of feeling like there are a million little pieces to fit together in some type of order?' 

Then, I thought about the different steps I take to teach reading and realized I could fit them into a color coded system!

It was kind of ridiculous how exited I was.

And, that is basically how The Monster Crew Reading Pathway was born.

Now, you can easily find products by just looking for the color associated with your child's reading level (just take a glance at TMC Reading Pathway to the left for guidance).
