As a child I struggled myself with reading and comprehension. I am aware of many strategies that can be used for comprehension, vocabulary development, phonics, and increasing fluency. with I have taught reading for 8 years in 3rd and 4th grades and reading intervention in 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th grades. I am aware of various different programs such as Read Naturally.

I have taught all subjects in grades 3 and 4 and substitute taught in 6th grade. I have also done summer school in 2nd grade.
