Meet Ted
I have spent the last 5 years as a Pre-K Teacher in Boston. Recently, I completed My Master's Degree at the Harvard Graduate School of Education with a concentration in Language and Literacy. I believe that strong reading and language skills lay the foundation for all aspects of learning. There is an old cliche in the education field, that from pre-k to third grade children are learning to read, and from third grade on they read to learn. My work experience and education allows me to help young children learn the fundamental decoding and comprehension skills to make them strong readers; furthermore, for older children I can help them learn specific reading comprehension strategies in different domains like science or social studies that require different styles of reading to facilitate comprehension of the material. I personally love to read a wide variety of text and would like to help the next generation of children to both develop the skills to enjoy reading as well as teach them in a way where reading does not seem like a chore, but something exciting and germane to their lives.
