I am particularly passionate about developing the vocabulary of all learners, which sets the stage for future successes! Over the years, I have been an Upper Elementary Literacy Specialist, Upper Elementary Literacy Coach, and classroom teacher. I love to work closely with teachers in implementation of best practices in Literacy, including Guided Reading, Vocabulary Development, Digging Deeper in Utilizing Student Data, and Focusing on Comprehension. I blog about all things literacy at www.hellomrssykes.com.
