About Jill

I am currently a reading interventionist at a local elementary school. I have taught several years in Texas schools and am also a certified school administrator. My family and I have also lived overseas and are familiar with various cultures and backgrounds. I believe that every student can learn. There is joy in learning and that teachers can help a student find that joy and become a life-long learner. I love guiding students in the learning process.

I am married and have three children--ages 19, 7 and 5.

I understand the reading process.
-phonemic awareness
-phonics
-fluency
-vocabulary
-comprehension

I am a certified elementary teacher. I am familiar with the complex process of learning to read and have experience in explicitly teaching this process.

Phonics and whole language are both important. To teach effective phonics I use explicit, systematic instruction and practice. Students learn to match a unit of sound to the letter or letters that make that sound. Segmenting and blending this sounds is the next step.

I look forward to learning together!
