Hello! I am Jessica Acosta and I am the Reading Coach at GES. I assist teachers and students with reading and writing skills and strategies.
I have been in education for 15 years, prior to that I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor's in English/minor in Journalism and Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with a Reading Specialization.
I love literacy, getting teachers and students excited about the processes of reading and writing, and diving into great texts!
"The fire of literacy is created by the emotional sparks between a child, a book, and the person reading. It isn't achieved by the book alone, nor by the adult who is reading aloud—it is the relationship winding between all three, bringing them together in easy harmony." Working together, teachers, parents, community and children, will bring the fire to life.
Below you will find some of my favorite reading web sites.
