About Brigitte

I am currently an intervention reading teacher, trained in the Wilson "Fundations" program. This program is recognized for its success in providing students with a deep understanding of phonics, and provides the tools necessary to become an independent and successful reader and writer.

I teach in a third grade ESL classroom during the school day, facilitating small-group, intensive phonics and literacy lessons. The school also provides an after-school program where I deliver one-on-one homework help, and teach a writing class to students in third, fourth, and fifth grade.

My approach to teaching is to be continually patient and to listen carefully to the specific problems students are experiencing. I believe a calm, distraction-free environment is the only way to focus and be engaged in your work. I make every effort to create a calm and emotionally supportive atmosphere when working with students.
Every student should have the opportunity to receive undivided attention, and find success in overcoming their individual learning obstacles. Taking small but effective steps is the way to slowly build confidence and achieve competency in your subject. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to working together.
