My name is Briana Brown, and I am the Literacy Intervention Teacher here at Holley Elementary. I will be working with students and teachers in kindergarten through fifth grade on reading and writing. I graduated from Houston Baptist University with a bachelors of science in interdisciplinary studies. My husband and I have a new baby boy who is the light of our lives and keeps us very busy.I am excited to support our leaders in reading and writing through the Fountas and Pinnell LLI program this year. Observing each child’s success and growth in literacy inspires me every day. I believe all children can grow to love literacy; they just need the right tools, explicit teaching, practice and support to be successful at it. We all can achieve great things!
Bilingual Literacy Interventionist
Belinda CavazosI am excited to be part of the Holley family ! As a Bilingual Literacy Intervention Teacher, I provide intensive literacy intervention in Spanish and/or English to identified small groups of students using “pull-out” and “push-in” models. I work collaboratively with teachers to deliver exemplary literacy instruction to all students. When working with the classroom teacher, provide training and support through academic coaching, co-teaching, lesson modeling, facilitating, etc. I also use data to help teachers identify and group students who need additional literacy supports.
¡Estoy muy contenta de pertenecer a la familia de Holley Elementary!
Mi labor es proporcionar intervención en el área de lectura, de manera intensiva, ya sea en inglés o español, a grupos pequeños utilizando los modelos “pull-out” y “push-in” (fuera y dentro del salón de clases). También trabajo en colaboración con los maestros para procurar una educación ejemplar para todos nuestros alumnos. Esto incluye el identificar aquellos grupos de estudiantes que necesitan apoyo adicional en la lectura.
English Learner Specialist
My name is Jennifer Scarrow, and I love being an EL Specialist at Holley Elementary! I attended elementary, middle, and high school in Fort Bend ISD. My undergraduate degree is from Texas A & M University, and in 2017, I completed my Master of Education in Teacher Leadership with a concentration in English as a Second Language from Lamar University. I began my teaching career in HISD over 20 years ago, and I have taught both primary and upper elementary before becoming an EL Specialist. I have been the HAABE ESL Teacher of the Year at two campuses and consider it a privilege to work with English Learners.
My husband and I have one daughter that attends FBISD. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and reading.
I am an advocate for all English Learners, and I am here to support all ELs in their educational journey.
