• Reading is the Greatest Adventure

    Once a child can read, they have the world at their fingertips!  Books can take you places in your mind. You can visit other countries and continents, you can explore the oceans and outer space! What a wonderful thing to teach a child to read.

    My goal here at Midway is to facilitate the reading success of every student and teacher.  Research tells us that the more we read the more intelligent we become.  Every child can learn.  We are all different and are learning at varying rates.  As a state-endorsed reading coach, I will support the Midway faculty in meeting the reading growth needs of the high-achieving reader and the struggling readers as well.  I will update my site with meaningful literacy links, current research, and ideas for trailblazing reading initiatives. Contact me if you have questions or comments about the literacy initiatives here at Midway Elementary School.  
    I look forward to hearing from you!
