Hi. my name is Anne Glass. I'm a reading and learning specialist at a private school in New York City and I work with Kindergarteners through 3rd graders on Reading, Word Study, and Writing Skills. I have 2 masters degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University. One in learning disabilities, and one in reading. I also teach graduate students in the department of Special Education at a local city university. In addition to be a reading specialist and learning specialist, I'm also a parent. I have 2 boys, who are 5 and 8 years old. They're in kindergarten and 2nd grade, and have actually taught me as much about teaching as my graduate programs. Today I'm here to talk to you about reading.
