• My name is Muriel Samedy and I am a Reading Specialist at Columbus Elementary School. Welcome to my webpage!

    I service 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. I meet with each grade daily for 30 minute periods where I provide the students direct, explicit, and targeted reading instruction using The Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) program (Fountas & Pinnell); the district’s reading program. With each day of instruction, students make worthwhile gains in areas like phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing.

    My goal is to address and close reading deficits and ensure that students become independent lifelong readers.  I believe in modeling good reading habits each day.  These include reading fluently, asking critical questions of text, and being able to look at the deeper meaning of text.

    I look forward to seeing my students succeed and to support them on their journey of not only becoming fluent readers, but thoughtful scholars as well.

    Thank you for visiting my webpage. ;-)
