Teaching is my second career. I am currently a Special Education Literacy Processing Specialist, working with kindergarten through fifth-grade students who have reading difficulties. I am teaching at Maggie Cordova Elementary School in Rio Rancho. This is my 13th year of teaching having taught first, second, and third-grade students. Before making a career change, I was a newspaper copy editor for 20 years. I love reading and I want to make sure that all children have the best opportunities for learning to read. I am excited to be a part of The Reading League New Mexico.
