Hello Grand Oaks family!
My name is Michelle Luna, and I am the Reading Specialist here at Grand Oaks! Reading is my passion, and aiding those that struggle to experience the joy of reading is my joy!
My experience has me instructing young minds as a classroom educator in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade in both Texas and Maryland. In New York, I served as a K-5 Reading Specialist and Instructional Literacy Coach for ELA teachers across campus. I completed my Undergraduate at Villa Julie College, a private college specializing in teaching educators. I hold a Masters in Literacy from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. I am certified in Literacy, EC-6 Elementary Education, ESL, and GT trained.
As the Reading Specialist on campus, you will find me working with reading groups, intervening closely with students needing targeted reading instruction. In addition to my time with students, I work diligently with our ELA classroom teachers to ensure our students are receiving the highest quality English Language Arts instruction.
I am committed to serving our students here at Grand Oaks as we prepare them to be life long learners and readers! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. I look forward to a positive and productive partnership with you!
