Dear Families, 
These are difficult times. I know we are all stressed and worried. We want our students to continue to grow and learn even when they can't be in school. We do not want summer slide to begin early this year. The best thing your child can do to keep up with his/her reading skills is practice reading. It really doesn't matter what  they read as long as they practice. It doesn't matter if they have read a book 100 times before , just keep reading. I have added some links under Schools are Closed. These links along with the links under Students will be helpful for students to keep up with their reading. 
If you do not have access to online learning and your child needs reading materials, please contact me at the above email address. I will provide books to be picked up at school. Please be safe and take care! We all miss our students and can't wait to be with them again!!

 Welcome to my webpage. This is my sixth year as the reading specialist at Fishburn Park Elementary School. I have worked for Roanoke City Schools for twenty-one years. I am married and have two grown children. I am grandmother to a beautiful little girl and boy. I love to read and travel. I look forward to meeting you and working with your child. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have about your child's reading progress.
