Welcome to my website! Let me tell you al little bit about myself and my role as a 4-8 Reading Specialist at the Edgartown School. I have been a teacher at the Edgartown School for 16 years. For 8 years, I was a 3rd grade teacher and then moved to 4th grade for 6 years. The past two years I was the K-4 reading Specialist. I am very excited about my move to the upper grades and the switch to a greater focus on comprehension skills. I carry many certifications as an educator. My most recent accomplishment was my K-12 Reading Specialist license in 2011.
At the Edgartown School, I will be working with students in 4-8 who need some extra support with their reading or writing skills. I will be using a program called Leveled Literacy Intervention by Fountas and Pinnell. This is a cutting edge program that provides comprehension instruction as well as vocabulary support. The books alternate between a students' independent level and their instructional level. The books are highly engaging for students which makes all the difference. I am excited to use this intervention.
