Welcome Crete Elementary families!
My name is Amanda Karczewski and I'm honored to be your literacy coach. My background in education includes teaching first grade, fourth grade and was the reading specialist at Balmoral Elementary. I've received a bachelor degree in education, and a masters in reading and administration from Saint Xavier University.
I believe the role of the literacy coach is to build a strong literacy climate that involves students, staff and families. Together we can achieve many wonderful opportunities for our students to be successful. I'm here to work closely with teachers and students to make sure their literacy needs are being met. Together we work on integrated units of instruction that are used at each grade level and create instructional groups to meet the needs of all students. Please don't hesitate to contact me at anytime regarding questions you may have about your child's literacy needs.
