Dear Parents and Students, 
  This year in grades 2-4, we have been working on developing reading skills and applying essential reading strategies to gain a deeper understanding and enjoyment of text, providing the foundation for a lifetime love of reading. 
  As a school Reading Specialist my job is to serve as a student and literacy advocate 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 2-4 to help all students meet their individual academic potential in accordance with district goals and New Jersey Common Core State Standards. I help your child find success in reading through various instructional strategies such as in class support, co-teaching models, Guided Reading and intensive leveled literacy intervention.  Instruction is differentiated and geared toward meeting students’ individual learning styles and needs. 
  I am looking forward to working together with you in order to help your child succeed personally and academically. I look forward to seeing many of you during November conferences.  Until then, please do not hesitate to contact me using the information listed below. 

Best regards, 

Stacy Ehrlinger
M.Ed., Reading Specialist
