Mrs. Amanda Powers

 
 
Reading Interventionist
 
Hello and welcome! Every child has the right to learn to read, and it is a priviledge to be a part of that journey. My role is to provide additional strategies and support to students in a small group setting, so all may feel the success of being a fluent reader. A fluent reader is one who models an appropriate rate or speed, maintains accurate word recognition, recognizes and responds to punctuation, and is able to understand what he/she just read. A fluent reader is also able to visualize the details of text and make deeper connections. Reading allows a child to open the doors of adventure and knowledge, and I can't think of a better way to spend my day!
