It is with pleasure that I introduce myself to you, as I will be working with students in Kindergarten through Third grade. My name is Felicia Boyd, and I am the Literacy Coach/ Reading Interventionist for the school year. As your child’s support teacher, I will be focusing on improving their reading levels and supporting them to reach their benchmark (grade level) goals.
The reading program I will be implementing will be a positive and supportive program designed to give students an extra boost in their academic skills and self-esteem. My key role is to provide supplementary interventions in small group and individualized settings. I will focus on different strategies to teach reading and provide differentiated instruction to all of my diverse learners.
My primary goal is to help each student acquire the necessary reading skills to become proficient readers. I will work with the core subject teachers to identify areas of need to individualize their educational experience. I will be constructing explicit small group lessons on a daily basis, as well as co-teaching in whole group settings.
My overall goal as a reading interventionist is to meet my students’ needs, but also keep them motivated and engaged in the learning process. I strive to create a nurturing and stimulating learning environment that promotes achievement to the highest potential. I believe ongoing communication between home and school enhances your child’s educational experience and promotes learning to the highest level. If you have any comments, questions or just want to chat feel free to email or call me. I’m looking forward to a great school year!
