About Despina

I was hired by the Milwaukee Public School District as a Reading First intervention teacher to provide struggling readers in grades K-3rd grade with additional support and instruction. I administered both formal and informal assessments, determined students’ instructional needs, and designed lessons to help students grow as readers. During this time, I helped teachers implement research-based best practices in the five areas of reading identified under the Reading First grant.

Now I am teaching K5 at one of the elementary schools in the Milwaukee Public School District. Prior to being hired by the MPS District, I taught 7 years in 3rd grade. I have been an elementary teacher for 11 years, and I enjoy working with students of all ages. I completed my Master's degree in reading, and I am looking forward to helping students succeed in reading.

I just received my Masters in Reading. I am certified to help children in reading from Kindergarten to 12th grade.
