Professional Experience: Keri has worked as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery trained educator, and school administrator for the past 22 years.

Keri has completed extensive work with individual and small group literacy instruction including assessments for diagnosing student’s skill level, delivering lessons focused on individual learning goals, and progress monitoring to inform instruction and next steps.
