Mrs. Dunsford - Reading


Welcome to StarBooks Reading Club! Grab a comfy chair and a great book. I am the Academic Growth Coordinator and Reading Coach for South Mckeel Academy.  My goal is to create a warm, learning environment that promotes a LOVE for Reading. Yes, it is possible for every child...even our most reluctant readers.  I graduated from Warner University with an Elementary and Primary Education Degree in 2002. I am certified PreK-6th grade and also ESOL endorsed. My passion is traveling and training teachers internationally, in the countries of Colombia and Nicaragua. It is my privilege to train teachers and bring supplies to underdeveloped schools and show them how to create a love for reading and literature!  Can't wait to see what new books are out there and start diving in with your children! We are going to have a great year!
