My name is Tara Tepper. I am a Reading Specialist at the Springs School UFSD. I work with students to increase their reading levels through a number of strategies and scientifically researched methods. Some of the programs I use to help my students increase their reading levels include: Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI), Wilson, and Fundations. I incorporate guided reading strategies used by Fountas and Pinnell to help students improve their reading abilities. Students learn to read using a multi-sensory approach. It is extremely important for children to read daily and discuss what they have read. Reading often will help to reinforce what is learned in the classroom.
