Hooray! You made it to my page.
My name is Mariama Carr Adam and I am a Dyslexia Reading Specialist at Palmer Elementary. I am married with a son and we have three dogs. I am originally from West Africa, Senegal and when I came to the United States, it was a huge adjustment for a small six-year-old girl. I did not have any form of schooling prior to coming to the United States, so I had to learn not only to speak English, but to read and write it too. It was not easy, and I struggled in reading for a long time. However, it was my teachers who believed in me and cared about my success. They built me up to not only become an honor roll student but to believe in myself as well. In 2009, I graduated with a degree in Education from Texas Southern University. I also obtained my ESL certification, Gifted and Talented Certification, along with my Special Education Certification. Elementary school is where children build their educational foundation. I want to impact my students the same way my teachers did for me so many years ago. I want every student that walks into my life to remember me 20 years later as the teacher who showed them, they are a CHAMPION!
I want you to know that I am here for you and your child. I promise to keep them safe, motivate them, encourage, love, and support them in every capacity possible.
We are a team and only by working together do we pave the way for our children.
