Reading- Mrs Fouche

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Fouche

Dear Families,

I am excited to be joining the reading team at Highland Elementary School. I have been teaching in the Westfield Public School system for many years and have a strong background in the area of literacy. This year I will be providing reading and writing support to students in grades K-5.

Students are tested in September and again in January to assess their need for support.  They are chosen to participate in a reading intervention based on their test scores as well as teacher recommendation. The intervention programs that we use with students are research based and reinforce phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, oral reading fluency, and comprehension. The children are seen in small groups, so that they can receive as much individual support as possible.

I encourage you to promote reading at home by:

1. Setting an example by being a reader yourself. You are your child’s          number one role model!

2.      2. Adopting a nightly reading routine that includes all of the following:

·         reading aloud to your child

·         choral reading with them

·         having them read to you

·         talk about what you have read


I am looking forward to working with the students, staff and families of Highland School!

Mrs. Fouche
