"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!" - Dr. Seuss

My name is Karla DeFazio, and I am one of the Reading Interventionsists at John T. Magee Middle School. This is my 18th year teaching, a job I knew I would one day have since I was little.  I work with small groups of students who have demonstrated a need for extra support in reading through various assessments. My role is to improve reading comprehension skills and help students improve and internalize reading skills/strategies to use independently across all content areas.  These skills/strategies include, but are not limited to: summarizing, sequencing, visualizing, inferencing, predicting, applying context clues, and building vocabulary.
