I am a retired elementary teacher with experience in public, private and homeschool settings which included work with deaf and special needs children. I love to see children develop a love for reading and be able to relate what they read to everyday experiences.
Parents can reread the passages we read in class to allow students practice to improve reading fluency and expression.
