I am currently an administrator in a local district in the DFW area. I taught grades K-5 during my 8 years in the classroom. I also served as a tutor for a major tutoring services provider for approximately 2 years where I supported struggling readers from the elementary to college level. I am very passionate about education and developing students' academic proficiencies, especially in the lower elementary areas.

In addition, I hold active Texas educator certifications as a Master Reading Teacher and Principal for grades EC-12 and certificates as a General Education and ESL teacher for grades EC-4.

I acquired a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in reading.

I have worked with teachers during my time as an instructional coach and administrator through the implementation of co-teaching, providing professional development, and assisting with lesson development as an effort to increase their instructional capacity to ensure their students are skilled readers and successful on the STAAR exam.

During my 11 years in the education field, I have worked solely at the elementary level. Throughout my teaching and tutoring experience I have encompassed a high success rate of developing strong readers at the lower elementary level and closing the academic gap for struggling readers at higher grade levels.

Most of my classroom and tutoring experience was in grades K-2, which is the foundation of reading instruction. One of my strengths is providing explicit and systematic instruction at the foundational reading level.

With a combination of my skills and your child's effort, I am confident that they will begin showing improvement in their reading proficiency in 3-6 sessions.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Lakeisha worked with son who needed to take the STAAR 8th grade reading she did an amazing job!! She's so pleasant and patient and I plan to use her next year just to keep my son ahead as he enters into High School!

Arrika, 4 lessons with La Keisha

My son likes her!

My son has had two sessions so far and looks forward to working with her again. She has a calming demeanor, but she challenges him and he seems to be learning. She has also said encouraging things to me about his progress, which I needed because I was feeling like he was behind. My son will continue working with her for a while.
