Kristy Sandum - Reading Specialist

Kristy Sandum


Reading Specialist
Room: 101

I have loved serving as the Reading Specialist at Settler's Point Elementary since 2011. I provide daily intense reading interventions to students who are struggling with the process of reading. Through my Tier 3 small intervention groups, I am able to create lessons that are tailored to fit what my specific students need. Focusing on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension provides a great foundation for reading. Students are Progress Monitored weekly to ensure they are responding to the intervention being provided. I recently obtained my Wilson Level 1 Certification and use those skills in every intervention group to benefit the students I service.

About Me

Prior to becoming a Reading Specialist, I taught Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. I am passionate about literacy and love helping others increase their skills and confidence in reading. My husband and I, along with our two adorable red heads and German Shepherd, Nala, reside in Gilbert.
