The Good Man Reading Well

By June 16, 2016January 23rd, 2023No Comments

The Scarlet Letter, Moby Dick, The Odyssey…some of the most cherished and challenging literature in history. Knowing that our students will one day read these texts, how do we begin to prepare children in the Grammar stage? This presentation will provide an overview of the “why and how” of teaching children to read in the Grammar grades.

Heather Arabie

Heather Arabie came to Regents in 2008 as a first-grade teacher. After several years in the first-grade classroom, she began to pursue a master’s degree in reading to better serve her students and fellow teachers. While in graduate school, Heather also began the certification process to become a dyslexia therapist. She is currently serving as the Director of K–2nd Grades and the reading specialist for the Regents Grammar School. In her role, Heather works to support and advise teachers as they instruct reading and literature in the classroom. Additionally, she works with the Grammar School Leadership Team to coordinate curriculum decisions. Heather has been married to Brett for 20 years. Heather and Brett have two children in the School of Rhetoric at Regents.
