  •      Reading is FUNdamental!

         I love my job as a Reading Tutor in Amesbury at the Cashman Elementary School.  I am so lucky to work with the children and staff in the Amesbury Public Schools.  I work with students in First Grade through Fourth Grade conducting nine reading groups a day.  It is so rewarding to see the effort and progress made by the children on a daily basis.  I am in constant communication with classroom teachers and other staff to monitor the progress of each student.

         I have been working in the Amesbury Public School System for the past 13 years.  I started as a Kindergarten Assistant and worked with Diane Hoover before becoming a Reading Tutor.  This is my fifth year working as a Reading Tutor.  I feel very lucky to work in the school system where my children attend school.

         My husband and I moved to Amesbury 22 years ago.  We live here with our two children and our Jack Russell Terrier.  My daughter, Nicole, is a freshman in College.  My son, Mark, is a senior at the high school and is making plans to attend college.  Our dog, Buddy, keeps us hopping.  Jack Russell's are very high energy dogs and very entertaining! 

         Feel free to contact me here at school if you have any questions or comments.  And remember to READ with your child.  Your home support is a KEY part of your child's  success!
