Degrees and Certifications:


Dear Partners in Education,


It is with pleasure that I introduce myself to you, as I will be working with your students in Pre-K through Eighth grade.  My name is Ms. Tyus, and I am the Reading Intervention Teacher at Charles Dickens Elementary School.  As your child's support teacher, I want to touch base with you regarding my position and interaction with your child.  I will be focusing on improving their reading levels and supporting them to reach their benchmark (grade level ) goals.


The reading program I will be implementing will be a positive and supportive program designed to give students an extra boost in their academic skills and self-esteem.  My key role is to provide supplementary interventions in whole group, small group, and individualized settings.  I will focus on different strategies to teach reading and provide differentiated instruction to all of my diverse learners.


My primary goal is to help each student acquire the necessary reading skills to become proficient readers.  I will work with the core subject teachers to identify areas of need to individualize their educational experience.  I will be constructing explicit small group lessons on a daily basis, as well as teaching in a whole group setting.


My overall goal as a reading specialist is to meet my students' needs, but also keep them motivated and engaged in the learning process.  I strive to create a nurturing and stimulating learning environment that promotes achievement to the highest potential.


Therefore, I encourage parental involvement and would love to hear from you.  If you have any comments, questions, or concerns feel free to call me.  I'm looking forward to a great school year.


Warm regards,

Ms. Tyus

Reading Intervention Teacher
