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. I hope to meet you on Back to School Night, on September 17th. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact me using the information listed below.
M.Ed., Reading Specialist
