Jen Milano - Literacy Support Specialist

Welcome to my webpage! I am the Literacy Support Specialist here at Dowling School! Monday through Thursday, I design and implement lessons for guided reading / literacy groups in grades K, 1, 3, 4, and 5 to support students as they progress as readers. Some of my literacy groups take place within the classroom community, while others take place in a separate space. In addition, I assist with administrative tasks related to our literacy curriculum and our School Improvement Plan. As an SOEI observer, I conduct teacher observations on Fridays.
