Welcome to  Title I

Hello!  My name is Erika Turner.  I am currently the Literacy Specialist in the Title I Room at Gilbert Elementary School. Over the past 25 years, I have spent lots of time learning about teaching literacy skills to children.  I received my BS in Elementary Education, an MS in Literacy Education, and  CAS in Literacy, all from the University of Maine.  As part of my education, I have been trained as a Reading Recovery Teacher, a Literacy Coach, and as a tutor for a program designed for children with Dyslexia called Orton Gillingham.  My classroom experience includes teaching both first grade and kindergarten.  However, I have spent the majority of my career in the roles of Title I Literacy Specialist and Literacy Coach.  Currently, the Title I program at Gilbert School helps support children who are experiencing difficulty with literacy skills in grades K-6th.
