I am a Reading Specialist working with first graders in a K-1 building. Prior to this assignment (2nd year in), I was working with middle school students, grades 6-8. Accordingly, working with 1st graders is like an entirely different career! I am also a mother of 3 and a volunteer wish granter for Make-a-Wish. At present, I am taking college courses that will help me provide me with further skills and professional development.
