I am starting something new this year! After teaching 31 years in the classroom I have now retired and I will be the 3rd Grade Reading Coach here at Southwest. I am really excited about this new adventure and will love teaching reading to students. First, let me tell you about myself. I graduated from Weatherford High School and then I attended SWOSU where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and a Masters degree in Reading Specialist. I have wanted to be a teacher from the age of 10. I love teaching with a passion! I guess you can say that teaching
has been my life long dream. My favorite thing about teaching is watching a child's face light up when they are learning something new.
Now, a little about my family. My parents are Ferrell and Sue Roles. I have one brother, Clint Roles. He is a fireman and a paramedic in Weatherford. I have a niece and a nephew, Lauren and Logan Roles. I also have a gray furry dog named, Buster. Buster is 12 years old and greets me everyday with a wagging tail after school.
My goal is to help improve the reading skills of third grade students who are struggling. I will work with these students in small groups to teach and improve their reading skills. My hope is to instill the enjoyment of reading for a lifetime.
