I have homeschooled, taught in the elementary setting, and I have taught middle school students during my 20 years of experience. Currently I teach Special Education. My day consists mostly of small reading groups. The best thing I love about teaching is teaching reading! When my ‘little ones’ first come to my resource room, I assess the current skills, discover the gaps in their foundation [which are there for various reasons], and then we get to work. Usually, the least likely reason for learning gaps is not that they are not sharp enough to learn to read. They are very sharp! They just need someone to put some successful reading tools in their toolbox for them to use.
