Welcome Back! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this school year.  I am excited to work together to help them grow as a reader!  I will be working with students using a methodology called,  Orton-Gillingham.  It is a multi-sensory program used to improve reading, writing and spelling skills.  I hope to give each student the necessary tools to achieve success and become confident, independent readers.  My main focus will be to build on your child's strengths and provide him/her with the necessary strategies, support, and skills to be a successful and confident student.  

    I strongly believe that parents and teachers working as a team and communicating, plays a major role in your child's education.  Together we can make this a very positive and productive year for your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at shannon.tenpenny@woodbridge.k12.nj.us.
