My name is Christine and I am a Reading Specialist, virtual teacher and mom. My daughter, Molly, was born September 27th 2016 and since then my life has changed quite a bit. I became a new mommy, received my New Jersey certification as a Reading Specialist (P-12), and resigned from my job as a middle school language arts teacher.
I graduated from Centenary University in 2010 with a B.A. in English and my teaching certification as Teacher of English (K-12). For eight years I worked as a middle school language arts teacher in a public and charter school, and tutored students of all ages and abilities. During this time I also completed my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction/Reading from University of Phoenix and earned my New Jersey Reading Specialist endorsement.
Sadly, during my time as a teacher I have seen so many students struggle with reading. I have worked with kids who are reading on a second grade level in sixth grade because schools no longer provide the support they need. Which is what has brought me here. I want to help as many kids and families as I can.
I currently teach English and reading courses with EdOptions Academy, work as a Reading Specialist with high school students, and as a reading consultant/tutor for students in grades 6-12.
