An Evaluation of Virtual School's Preparation of Second Grade Students for Third Grade Reading Proficiency
Third-grade reading proficiency is an indicator of future student success in middle school and ninth grade, on-time graduation rates, and career success; however, 44% of third-grade students in one state were not meeting this goal.
The data from my study demonstrated that third-grade students in virtual school outperformed third-grade students in face-to-face learning environments in reading proficiency by seven percentage points on the State Standards Assessments between the years 2015-2019. These data were in direct contradiction with the data from the teacher survey and interviews.
America's Embarrassing Reading Crisis: WHAT WE LEARNED FROM COVID
More than 80 percent of students who fail to earn a high school diploma were struggling readers in third grade.
We all want our children to learn and thrive. We want them to achieve measurable success–and live up to the vast potential inside each of them. But in order to do that, we must tackle the biggest problem facing America today: reading. Without proper reading skills, our workforce is less robust, job opportunities are more limited and people's lives are held hostage as their own self-worth becomes diminished.
Yet, the pandemic brought forth valuable lessons. The global crisis shed light on another, lesser known, pandemic already in play for children across America. At first, parents, teachers, and other educators grappled with online teaching. Then, however, came profound lessons about teaching reading to young students–and the success that followed–because of virtual education.
America's Embarrassing Reading Crisis: WHAT WE LEARNED FROM COVID blends the pre-covid methods and theory placed within classrooms and homes and blends them into strategies that work in today’s environment.

Family Second Language Acquisition
How can the socioeconomic status of families can be increased through second language acquisition?
My research looks into the family as a single support unit in learning a second language. Parents, children, siblings, and even grandparents are all important conduits by teaching and learn from each other.
