Reading Intervention

“Allow your passion to become your purpose, and one day it will become your profession.” –Gabrielle Bernstein

Since I was a little girl, I always dreamed of being a teacher. I was often found with a book in my hand, and teaching to my dolls and stuffed animals. I am a big believer in that you need to do what you love. My love is reading, teaching and working with young children. I am looking forward to continuing this journey of focusing on what I am passionate about. I feel so fortunate to do what I love every day and having the opportunity to share my love of reading with my students.

While your child is receiving reading intervention services we will be working on the many facets of reading through the use of the Leveled Literacy Intervention. Not only will we be working on improving your child’s reading, but we will be setting goals and striving to reach those goals. We will delve deep into books, have conversations, decode words, discuss vocabulary, write about our reading and build a community of readers. I strongly believe in the power of the school-parent relationship, and together we will help your child succeed.

Math Coach

Math Intervention

Do you love Math but need help? Do you dislike Math because it is confusing? Then I am one to see. My name is Miss Gardner and I am one of East Shore Leadership Academy's Math Interventionist. I love working with our students who need additional assistance and spread my love for Math. My love for Math started when I was in Middle School. It just seemed like things clicked with me, along with how my teacher was teaching the Math concepts.

I am starting my 25th year in Education and I am excited to work with our students and hope that at the end of the year all of our students will love Math too. When I am not working with our fabulous students, I enjoy being with my family, being outdoors, working in my garden or hanging out with friends.
