Mrs. Reisen


My name is Jaime Reisen and I am a certified Reading Teacher working with Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade.  I provide additional reading and writing services to students throughout the school day to help boost their skils.  I love to read, write and learn and want my students to feel the same way.  These basic skills are important life skills that all children need for success in life. 

If your child is working with me this year, then they have homework each night! Their homework is to read, read and read some more.  In school we teach students the skills and strategies needed for fluent reading, but students need to apply those skills in order to become confident readers.  We do this in school, but it needs to continue at home.  Please provide a quiet time for your child to sit and read books, write in a journal, or play interactive thinking games. 

Also, please encourage conversation in your home.  Students who struggle with language skills or sound pronunciations typically have a hard time learning to read.  It makes learning letter and sound relationships very challenging, and sets kids behind when they have to apply sounds while reading and writing.  Talking is a good thing! Correct their mistakes and expect them to speak correctly.  That will really help them with their reading and writing. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about me or our reading program.  My email is   I hope to meet everyone at Parent/Teacher Conferences on Friday, November 13th!
