Corinne Owens - Title I Reading Teacher

My name is Corinne Owens and I'm a Title I reading teacher at JCE.  This is my 31st year as an elementary education teacher.  I began my career as a 4th grade teacher in Birmingham, Alabama, where I taught for 3 years.  I then moved back to Jacksonville, NC, where I began teaching at JCE in 2nd grade for 8 years. I decided to become a Title I reading teacher and have been involved in the program for the past 20 years. I enjoy working with all grade levels, reinforcing ELA skills and reading strategies in a small group setting. My goal is to provide my students with additional support as they grow into readers and develop a LOVE of reading.
