About Ms. Wallet

Hi!  My name is Ms. Wallet and I am the reading tutor for the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades at Second Hill Lane Elementary School.  This year, I will be implementing the program "Read Naturally" to improve student fluency and comprehension skills.  I will be working with small groups to give students extra support.  Students will work with me, with partners, and independently.  "Read Naturally" is a wonderful program which provides learning in a fun way!  In addition, I will be working on cloze activities (word deletion) with students to improve DRP Reading Test scores, administering assessments, and monitoring student progress.

I was a classroom teacher for 6 years and then took time off to raise my family.  During that time, I taught nursery school, volunteered as a classroom mom, worked in the school library, and was involved in a variety of school committees.  I also worked as a long-term substitute for 4th grade in Monroe and for 6th grade in Fairfield.  Last year, I was an ELL tutor at Second Hill Lane.

I attended Cornell University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies.  I earned a Juris Doctorate from Albany Law School and passed the bars in both Connecticut and New York State.  I received my teaching certification from Brooklyn College.  I am also certified as a Reading Specialist from Sacred Heart University.

I have lived in Connecticut for more than 11 years.  I have a daughter, Kayla, in 6th grade, a daughter, Diana, in fourth grade, and a little Yorkshire Terrier, Liza.  In my spare time I love to read, watch my daughters in their extra-curricular activities, dance, sing, travel, and learn new things!  I am looking forward to an exciting, knowledge-filled year!!!
