About Nanette

I am extremely passionate about teaching children and watching them grow. I enjoy challenging students to think and question everything. Teaching is definitely a great profession. I know that I can make a difference in every child's life.
I have experience teaching first, second, and third grade ESL students. I am a Reading Specialist for elementary students K-6 where I work with a variety of learning needs in the areas of reading fluency, comprehension, grammar, writing, vocabulary, and dyslexia. I am able to help students on test-taking strategies to prepare for STAAR tests. I enjoy helping students understand their unique challenges while developing a plan that will help them achieve their learning goals. I have helped many students make improvements and have maintained long-term tutoring relationships with families. I have had the pleasure of teaching for 19 years and tutoring for 15.
I earned my bachelors degree from the University of Texas at Austin. I have been trained in Project Read, Really Great Reading, SRA, Rewards, and Read Naturally. Most work heavily in the following areas: phonics, phonemic awareness, decoding skills, vocabulary and comprehension skills.

I look forward to hearing from you!
