About Marion

Hello, my name is Marion but most of my students call me Mrs. M.

I worked in a local school this past school year helping 2nd and 3rd graders by teaching them how to become better readers. By seeing more words coming up in the sentence and reading the same story several times in one session my students were able to understand how that helped to master new words and phrases. By the fourth read their words per minute increased dramatically. We also discussed the story and worked on comprehension, understanding what the story was about.

I helped with summer school and again helped kids with learning to read better. Most of the kids were 1st and 2nd graders this last school year. These sessions were more about learning sight words and phrases. We had a lot of fun , played games with words , and read stories. All of the kids reading ability increased in those 4 weeks.

I have learned many skills from being a member of AmeriCorps. Through a division of theirs, Minnesota Reading Corps, I was trained to do the job of helping kids become better readers. I loved doing it and I found the kids to be eager and delightful. I took a pledge when I joined AmeriCorps to make a difference in America and get the job done. I believe I fulfilled my pledge but I am not done yet. I am so loving working with kids that I will continue to do so as long as I can.

I will continue to teach frequent words and phrases that are applicable to each age group. I make it fun to learn them with games and application. I will teach you how to read effectively and efficiently. By reading stories that are interesting we will learn comprehension, the icing on the cake. I want to take you on an adventure to feel the joy and the adventure that reading will bring to you.

When working one on one with kids, even children with ADD get the attention that the need. Reading skills do take time to learn, it is not just do this and in the future you will be fine. A commitment from home to work with the kids is very important.
