About Ellen

My love of teaching has grown with the number of students I encounter. I have over 22 years' experience in the field of education. I earned a Master's Degree in Reading with an emphasis in Learning Disabilities. A structured comprehension approach is used to increase inferential reading, comprehension and critical reading skills. Phonics is emphasized as needed. I incorporate written language skills to enhance expression and communication. My love of teaching has grown with the number of students I encounter.
