Degrees and Certifications:
It is my great pleasure to be the Reading Specialist at Beverly Elementary. My primary role as the building Reading Specialist is to support and instruct students. Additionally, I am a resource to teachers and the parent community. Some of the services I provide to students include individual Reading Recovery instruction for first graders, small group reading instruction, Bobcat Academy classes before school, individual reading assessments and team teaching with classroom teachers. I am dedicated to ensuring that all students at Beverly Elementary become successful independent readers.
Reading with Mrs. Reef
"Kids who don't have educationally rich summers will be nearly three years behind their peers by the time they reach the end of the fifth grade… Much like we would expect an athlete or a musician's performance to suffer if they didn't practice regularly, the same thing is true for young people when it comes to reading performance."
