Meet Mrs. Childs
Greetings! My name is Mrs. Childs and I have been an AIS Literacy teacher and Reading Recovery teacher in the Gates Chili School District for 17 years. I have taught AIS Literacy at the middle school and AIS Literacy and Reading Recovery at Neil Armstrong Elementary School an Florence Brasser Elementary School. I love teaching students how to read and write!
I received my Bachelor of Science Degree and English teaching certification 7-12 from SUNY Brockport in 1997. In 2001, I received my Master of Science Degree and Literacy certification K-12 from Nazareth College. In the past, I taught English for five years, but most of my experience has been working with struggling readers and writers. In 2013, I received training as a Reading Recovery specialist and have focused on the fundamentals of literacy education.
My husband, Curtis, and I have been married for eleven years. We have three children: Lydia, a 4th grader, Wesley, a 2nd grader, and Lila, a UPK student! They are full of energy and love! They love water, running, riding their bikes, laughing, and of course, chasing each other!
We have four cats: Tela, Marshmallow, Rosie, and Brownie. We also have a turtle named Tiny, who is quite Tiny. He actually is the size of a quarter. Finally, we have some tropical fish to keep our house alive!
If I am not teaching, I also work at Kohls. I love working at Kohls and meeting new people! I LOVE the Buffalo Bills, traveling, and spending time with my family.
Wow, I am a busy person!
