Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! So glad to have your child at Longfellow. My name is Becky Myers and I am a Reading Specialist at Longfellow. I have taught reading for 20 years and completed my degree at Southern Illinois University. As your child enters the wonderful world of reading, I get to share in their enthusiasm and excitement by working with them in small groups. I will be helping your student, along with your child's teacher, to develop a working knowledge as well as a conscious understanding of how language works. I will be implementing activities that will be presented developmentally based on the five levels of phonemic awareness. Parent involvement plays an important role in any child's academic success. You can help your child become a reader by reading to him/her regularly. I look forward to a great year of reading!
