I am so excited to continue in this wonderful role of helping children learn to read! I believe that reading opens so many doors for us. It’s important to remember that we were all beginners at one time, and that anything you want to learn takes practice.

I have worked in Allen Park for 32 years. I have taught Young Fives, kindergarten, first, second, and third grade. I’ve also taught Reading Recovery and worked as an Interventionist. This will be my third year as a literacy coach/reading specialist. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from U of M Dearborn in Elementary & Early Childhood Education, a Master’s Degree from Eastern Michigan in Reading Intervention K-12, and Reading Recovery Certification from Oakland University. I have endorsements on my teaching certificate in Early Childhood Development, English and Language Arts 6-8, Social Studies 6-8, and Reading Specialist K-12 (BR). I continually attend numerous workshops on reading instruction and literacy coaching strategies.

I oversee the instructional aides that are funded through the Title I, 31a, and 35a grants. I coach the classroom teachers on instructional strategies, interventions, and data analysis. I serve as the parent contact for the students in the intervention programs, as well as any other parents that would like assistance with literacy questions.

I can be reached by calling the school at (313)827-1050 ext. 3306, emailing me at wesley@appublicschools.com, or sending a note with your student for a phone call home.
