Hello there! My name is Rebecca Ybarra.
    This will be my 8th year working at Highland;
    five as a paraprofessional and three as a third grade teacher. 
    I have helped students as a reading specialist's assistant.
    I enjoy working in the classroom 
    with both parents and students.  
    I am available to help students become a better reader.
     During our time together, we work on skills
    such as letter-sound recognition, blending and fluency.
    I enjoy reading to them and having students read to me.
    These activities should help them enjoy reading at home and at school.
    I use the websites below to encourage them
    to have fun and build skills at the same time.
    Together, we can help our children become better readers!
