My name is Andrea Koster, and I am so excited to be a reading interventionist this year at Carver! I have a double major in both Early Childhood and Elementary Education and received my Master's of Education in Advanced Literacy Instruction from Concordia. It was a lot of hard work, but worth every bit, in order to become a Reading Specialist. It is a great feeling to have seen this goal through to its fruition!
Before finding my home at Carver, I spent a year teaching 3rd grade at a small private school. Since then, Carver has truly become my home, and I am proud to be a Carver Colt! I have taught kindergarten for 3 years and spent another 3 years in 2nd grade. It was so difficult to say goodbye to my wonderful 2nd grade team this past year, but I am so excited to start a new adventure in Reading Intervention and helping kiddos learn to love reading as much or more than me1
As you will see when you walk into the classroom, I LOVE books -- short ones, tall ones, thick ones, skinny ones, books about science, books about people, adventures, fairy tales, books about pirates, books about princesses, and even books about math! Yep, you read that correctly, I have found some really great BOOKS about MATH. One of these days, I am determined to write a story of my very own and have it published! But in the meantime, I love to share the books in my library with the kiddos in my classroom -- and hope that through seeing my love of reading they will also learn to love it too!
Once again, I look forward to meeting you (or seeing you again!) and beginning this adventure with you and your kiddo!______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Andrea KosterReading Intervention
