Welcome to The Literacy Coach's Web Page

My name is Michelle Tiesi and I am the Literacy Coach at Shady Brook.  I grew up in Avon, New York and have lived in North Carolina for 21 years.  I have worked all of those years at Shady Brook.  I started as a first grade teacher and then taught second grade prior to becoming the Reading Coach in 2004.   
I live in Huntersville with my husband, two terrific boys and beautiful daughter.  I like to travel, shop, read, garden, walk our dog Ripley and spend time with my family.  I am a New York Yankees fan.
College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from State University of New York Oswego and a Master's Degree in Reading
from University of North Carolina Charlotte.  I am also certified to teach AIG and have achieved National Board Certification.

Educational Philosophy/Vision: I believe that all children can learn. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.  I must provide the students with appropriate tools so they can be successful lifelong learners.

This is what we're doing this month:  

   Be sure to continue to read with your child nightly and ask questions related to the story.  Continue to have conversations about books, family adventures and all daily experiences.  This will build your child's oral language and vocabulary.  

Things parents/guardians can do to help:
-Show an interest in your child's learning.
-Read with your child nightly.
-Model good reading strategies.
