Tara Ferguson - Literacy Coach & Extended Essay Coordinator
Paris 2013

The past ten years afforded me the great pleasure of teaching English at all grade levels. From sheltered English Learners to intervention English to International Baccalaureate, my years at Thomas Edison produced great variety, promise and learning.  Currently, I work as the building literacy coach which includes monitoring and testing struggling readers, facilitating professional learning communities (PLCs) and coaching teachers.
