Welcome to Reading!

    Welcome to my website! As a Reading Specialist, I work with children who are reading below grade level, providing extra help in addtion to the reading instruction they receive from their classroom teacher. We determine who needs the extra help based on standardized testing data (such as the English Language Assessment), district testing data, and teacher recommendations.

    My goal is to get each student reading on grade level as quickly as possible. To accomplish this, I use a variety of intervention programs that specifically target each child's individual needs. Once a child is reading on grade level, that child is exited from the program.

    Research has proven that reading at home every night really helps! Please see the "Homework" page at the left for more information on how you can support your child's reading growth by reading at home.

    Feel free to browse around my website, and e-mail me if you have any questions. I look forward to working with your children!
