Mrs. Sandy Paredes
Welcome to the Reading Specialist's website for Bells School! I have been teaching at Bells School for twenty years. However, Bells has been a part of my life for nearly thirty years, since my own children attended school here. It is a pleasure to be part of a staff of teachers that I have admired for many years.
I was the Basic Skills teacher here at Bells for most of my teaching career, and in June, 2014, I was chosen as the new Reading Specialist! My experience as reading teacher has given me experience in teaching all grade levels. My new position is giving me new experiences in administering the reading program in our school.
I have also been an adjunct professor at Cumberland County Community College for the past fifteen years. I have taught various classes including English as a Second Language classes, remedial reading and writing classes, and English Composition.
My goal is to not only help my students overcome their reading difficulties, but to instill in them a love of reading that will enrich their lives!
