No one was born knowing how to read or having all the strategies to be a good reader and writer. Expert instruction and practice are the answers. The more enjoyable and engaging the practice is, the easier it is to learn. Ten years of experience as a Reading Specialist has taught me how to plan lessons around students' interests. For example, reading comprehension lessons might involve figuring out the directions to a game or a magic trick. Phonics practice always involves a game or puzzle.
I am Level I certified in Wilson and have loads of experience with Fundations and other programs. My instruction is based on assessments that give me answers about students' strengths and challenges. I love working one on one with kids and building their confidence in and awareness of their learning.
