What does an academic specialist do? If your child is in kindergarten, first or second grade, he or she will often see me coming into the classroom. I supplement the excellent work teachers do with additional reading and math lessons. My work is in the classroom as well as with small groups of students. In the classroom, I teach whole class lessons or assist the classroom teacher as he or she teaches the lesson. Each week, I also teach small groups of students to strengthen their reading and math skills or to enrich their reading skills.

Your child's classroom teacher and I work closely to meet the needs of every child!
