TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Literacy intervention teacher (10 years!), 2nd gr (3 years), 3rd gr (3 years), NBCT. I geek out over all things literacy!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am particularly passionate about developing the vocabulary of all learners, which sets the stage for future successes! Over the years, I have been an Upper Elementary Literacy Specialist, Upper Elementary Literacy Coach, and classroom teacher. I love to work closely with teachers in implementation of best practices in Literacy, including Guided Reading, Vocabulary Development, Digging Deeper in Utilizing Student Data, and Focusing on Comprehension. I blog about all things literacy at Hello Mrs Sykes

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certified Teacher, 2010 (Early-Middle Childhood Literacy)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I was supported and cared for by some exceptional teachers over the years, and I knew I wanted to make that difference for others. If it weren't for my first teachers (my parents!) I would not have graduated from High School on time! I was ready to toss in the towel after my attempts to learn world history, but they believed in me, and for that, I am forever grateful!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love learning and teaching with others. Follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram for more freebies, resources, and ideas!
