Degrees and Certifications:
Robin H. Williams
As of July 2018, I am the Reading Specialist here at Mt. Olivet Elementary. I have experience as an Instructional Coach with a demonstrated history of working in the primary/ secondary education industry. Skilled in teaching reading, lesson planning, differentiated instruction, and curriculum development. I'm a "Life-Long" learner with a Master's Degree focused in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford University and I was recently trained by CODEVA as a Computer Science Coach. Recently, I was recognized by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham as a Classroom Educator in Multisensory Structured Language Education. This is an effective teaching method for the child with learning difficulties arising from dyslexia.
My husband is a business owner in our community and my son is a graduate of the University of Virginia. He currently lives in Fort Collins, CO near the Rocky Mountains. The picture attached is from that location. I am a caregiver for my 94-year old grandmother. Returning to Mt. Olivet as a teacher is an honor. I attended Mt. Olivet Elementary as a student. I am a graduate of Laurel Park High School.
The Minnesota Vikings are my favorite professional team. I have been a fan since the late 70's. I enjoy reading, watching movies, traveling and I am learning to sew. I am a big fan of the color green. That may be one of the reasons I love being a volunteer for the 4H Youth Program in our community. I attend camp every year to teach crafts. It allows me an opportunity to support campers using my teaching skills. The best part is is that it offers me an opportunity to spend time with former students.
