Eleanor says: “I am originally from Chicago, but now live in Dorchester. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from Indiana University and a Master’s Degree in reading from Lesley University. I believe literacy is power and have therefore committed my career to equitable literacy instruction and experiences. As a reading intervention specialist, my role is to provide tier 2 supports for students, families and educators in order to ensure all students are successful readers. When working with your child, I can provide access to books and phonics resources, activities to practice literacy skills at home, information on the science of reading development, explanation of student literacy assessments, and help with understanding ‘reading levels’ and ‘literacy curriculum.’
