Thank you for visiting my page! 

BES has been my part-time home for 14 years. Previously, I was a paraprofessional who provided inclusion support in the classroom. Five years ago I began my new career as reading tutor and started the Master's program at UMASS Lowell. I recently graduated and became a certified reading specialist.

As a reading tutor at Boylston Elementary, it is my responsibility to support students in K through 5 who may be encountering difficulties with literacy. In partnership with the classroom teacher, I work with students in small groups throughout the week to provide additional instruction and practice. 

Whenever I am asked by parents what they can do to help their students, I offer this advice: "Read to your child or listen to them read to you!"

If you ever have any questions concerning literacy, please contact me.

Mrs. Murphy
