About Elizabeth A

I am MA certified as a consulting teacher of reading. Always using current practical application of skills keeps students involved. Most students can express their needs and I listen very carefully. I am especially skilled at restoring the confidence of older students who have been led to believe they are not capable.

My years of experience began with a large 4th grade class with an unusual number of students who were above grade level and an equal number who were struggling. Annual reading tests showed all students made a gain of over twelve months. We cooked, did geography projects, designed and created mosaics, and cared for a white rat, Jonathan, a character in one of the stories.

My final teaching was as a developmental reading specialist at Middlesex Community College in Lowell, Massachusetts. Many of my students were playing catch-up after not placing sufficient value on their prior education-this for a lot of reasons. More important was the opportunity to guide students through the skills that they needed to be successful. One student who lost faith in himself finally was able to come through, pass the course,and win a scholarship. Another, a wheelchair bound victim of CP with a lot of potential had never been taught to read. He learned, became involved in computer assisted design and desk-top publishing, and completed his 2 year degree.
