Mrs. Carol Pullen

    My name is Carol Pullen, and I am the Reading Specialist at Susan Moore Elementary School.  I have been in education for twenty-seven years. This is my twelfth year at SMES! My job title has changed over the years since I have been at SMES.  First, I was the Reading Coach (which I worked as for five years) then Instructional Coach/Instructional Partner (which I worked as for four years) to now Reading Specialist K – 3 (this is my third year).  I enjoy my job, and I am excited to see how our students are going to “grow” in READING!

    As an ARI Reading Specialist, I support teachers and students in kindergarten through third grade in reading.  Since we are a K – 6th school, I also support and advise 4th – 6th grade teachers.  My job is to provide on-going support to teachers as they incorporate new strategies into their classrooms.  My goal is to foster a LIFE-LONG LOVE of READING in ALL students!

    I am looking forward to a year of successful learning for all Susan Moore Elementary students.  It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with the outstanding administration, faculty, staff, and community of parents at Susan Moore Elementary!  SMES Pride!!!
