I am a retired elementary school teacher. For over 35 years I taught multiple subjects in the primary grades. However, my area of expertise is in reading and language arts. If a child knows how to read and comprehend what they're reading then they have a much better chance of succeeding in all other subjects. It gives me great satisfaction to watch a child learn how to decode words using basic phonics skills. I love to read and I want my students to love to read too.
I use a variety of methods to achieve reading proficiency including games, flash cards, puzzles, and cut and paste activities. The most important thing is that my students feel confident about their skills as a reader.
