About Elyse

I recently finished my corp experience through Teach For America - Chicago. I taught first grade for two years on Chicago's southwest side. Through my teaching experienced in a primary setting, I developed skills in teaching foundational reading skills. I have data-driven methods to build on phonics, rate, fluency, comprehension and accuracy skills in reading. I've developed and formulated decoding strategies, word attack strategies, as well as crafted resources to enhance student achievement and engagement.

I am a 2012 University of Michigan graduate. I studied American Studies, as well as Art History. In my first grade classroom, I was able to move 67% of my students to become second grade ready in reading. I care deeply about promoting literacy among young students - not only helping them to achieve results, but also instilling a love for reading.
