About Alyson

I am currently a Reading Specialist for 6th-8th graders, working with struggling readers. I am in graduate school for Educational Leadership. I began my teaching career as a 5th grade teacher, teaching literacy and social studies. Since then I have taught 6th grade Literacy, and 4th grade, before becoming a reading specialist. I have also tutored since I was in college.
I love reading and writing, and I love teaching literacy! I love showing kids that books can unlock another world, and get them to enjoy reading. I also love to help kids express themselves in writing and become better writers. My favorite part about tutoring is getting to watch a student understand a new concept. I enjoy watching their excitement and building their confidence!

I have taught reading and writing for the past 5 years, from grades 4 through 8. I work as a reading interventionist and know many strategies to help struggling readers and writers.

I have taught Common Core for the past 5 years. I have developed unit plans and lesson plans that are Common Core aligned. I feel very comfortable teaching the Common Core standards.

I am a certified K-8 Elementary teacher and have taught in Elementary Schools for the past 5 years.
