My name is Alisha Cavinder and this is my 11th year in education. I have a Master's Degree in Reading. This is my 3rd year as a Literacy Specialist. I previously taught 1st and 2nd grade and I have also been an Instructional Coach.
As a Literacy Specialist, I have the wonderful opportunity to work with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students to support their reading. I will be working hard to help our beginning readers transition smoothly from the Primary to the Elementary School. I will also provide information and resources for parents so that they can help their child improve in reading and writing. Furthermore, I get to work with excellent teachers. Reeds Spring School District is a great place to learn and a great place to work!
I feel honored to have the opportunity to teach and share wonderful learning experiences with the amazing children in our community. My favorite time of day is when I am reading with my students. They are willing to take risks and work hard to become a better reader. Furthermore, children bring such joy to learning with their excitement of their accomplishments along the way.
My husband's name is Waylon and we have been married for ten years. We have a dog, her name is Katy Bell. We recently added a new addition to our family, our baby girl, Claire Elizabeth.
