Welcome Wildcats!! I am very excited to return to South Mckeel as a Reading Interventionist where I will be teaching Kindergarten and First grade students in small groups. I earned my Degree in Education from Florida Southern College. In addition, I have my reading endorsement which the Florida Department of Education requires for this position. I attended the Institute for Multi-sensory Education (imse) and earned a certification in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading.
Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what is printed on the page. The students I work will be taken on a journey of discovery, amazement and wonder -- That's what reading a good book feels like. We all know the educational benefits of reading, such as improvement in vocabulary, speech, and writing. But reading goes beyond these educational benefits. It benefits the reader emotionally and mentally. Reading truly is the best friend, you thought you would never find.
