Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Tabernacle Elementary School. I am very fortunate to be part of a team of District Reading Specialists and administrators geared toward providing our students with an effective balanced literacy program. I am excited to continue working with grades 1-4 developing reading skills and applying essential reading strategies to gain a deeper understanding and enjoyment of text.
As a school Reading Specialist my job is to serve as an advocate for literacy as well as a resource for students, teachers, administrators, and parents in the Tabernacle community. I also work closely with teachers to provide resources and necessary professional development training. My primary focus, however, is to foster within the students a love for reading, writing and learning, thus preparing them for achieving their present and future goals.
Within the classroom, I work alongside teachers at grades 1-4 to help all students meet their individual academic potential in accordance with the New Jersey Common Core State Standards. I work to give students the proper tools and support through an in-class Balanced Literacy approach. I strive to gear instruction toward the students’ individual learning styles and needs.
I am excited to work together with you in order to help your child succeed personally and academically. Please do not hesitate to contact me using the information listed below.
M.Ed., Reading Specialist
