“If children are apparently unable to learn,
we should assume
that we have not as yet found the right way to teach them.”
Marie Clay
 
Education:
I am very excited to be working at Ben Franklin as a Reading Recovery Teacher and Reading Specialist.

After receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree  in
Elementary Education and Special Education from Gustavus Adolphus College, I went back to school to get my license to teach students with Specific Learning Disabilities.
As I searched for ways to help my students, I attended Cardinal Stritch University and earned my Masters degree in Reading and Language Arts and my Reading Teacher license.  I went back to Cardinal Stritch to obtain my Reading Specialist license.
As a Reading Specialist, I was trained to be a  Reading Recovery Teacher and I was given the opportunity to receive additional training in Readers Workshop from Columbia University in New York.



What is Reading Recovery?
Reading Recovery is a highly effective short-term intervention that provides one-to-one teaching for first graders.
Each lesson consists of:
1. re-reading familiar stories,
2. reading a story that was read for the first time the day before,
3. writing a story,
4. working with letters and words using magnetic letters,
5. assembling a cut-up story, and
6. reading a new book.
 
Each Reading Recovery lesson incorporates the five essential components of a comprehensive instructional program in reading.
The five components are:
  •  phonemic awareness,
  •  phonics instruction,
  •  fluency instruction,
  •  vocabulary instruction, and​
  •  text comprehension instruction.​
Accelerated learning is possible because Reading Recovery teachers base their instruction on carefully documented daily observations of what each child already knows about reading and writing. This is an efficient approach that allows all future instruction to work from the child’s strengths.

Availability:
I will be at Ben Franklin every day from 8:00-4:00.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
