Mrs. Higginbotham

I am the Early Literacy Specialist at Shady Shores.  I love reading and I want my students to share that love of reading with me!

I started teaching in 1991.  I was a classroom teacher in 4th and 5th grade, but I also spent 1 year as a Kindergarten teacher.  I have been a reading specialist since 1998.  I earned my Masters degree from George Mason University and have been trained as a Reading Recovery teacher.  I earned my National Board Certification in 2013 in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy.  My family moved to Texas in 2015 from Northern Virginia.
