About Me

My name is Candace Turner and I am looking forward to helping children get the literacy instruction they need to succeed in school and life.

I am a reading resource teacher who will be working with students who need extra support in reading. Students are provided targeted instruction for 30 minutes, five days a week, in the five components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. Students are served in small groups to assist in individualizing instruction and to enhance students’ ability for success.

My goal is to create a comfortable environment for students to become motivated and excited to read.  I will work with teachers to supplement and extend your child's reading.  Finally, I want your child to gain confidence in his/her reading ability and be able to enjoy reading.
