Welcome to the Reading CornerToday a Reader, Tomorrow a LeaderReading Websites:
My name is Lindsey Holmes and I am the proud Literacy Coach at Tavares Elementary. The 2018-2019 school year will be my 5th year in this position. I graduated from The University of Central Florida with my Education degree as well as my ESOL and Reading Endorsements in 2007. In 2017, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. My husband and I are parents to three beautiful children. Jackson is a second grader at TES, Maci is in Kindergarten at TES, and Annie is 2 years old. Being a Literacy Coach at Tavares Elementary is a rewarding job that brings a variety of tasks. As a coach, I work directly with teachers in a school providing classroom-based demonstrations, collaborative and one-on-one support, and facilitating teacher inquiry and related professional development. In addition, I work alongside the School-Based Leadership Team to collect and analyze data, interpret, and use it to guide instructional decisions. I also have the privilege of working with our students in grades K-5 to provide small group support as well as celebrating successes, which in return builds students’ sense of engagement in the ownership of learning. My main goal each day is to help make our school the best it can be! GO BULLPUPS!
