Welcome to the Reading Room!
My name is Joanne Sims and I am the Reading Specialist here at Kings Road School. I have been part of the Kings Road community for the past 7 years and look forward to working with your child(ren) this year! I am also a standing member on our I&RS committee and work closely with the teachers to implement new plans to help all children succeed.
I live in Readington Township and prior to joining KRS, I was a Reading Intervention teacher at Whitehouse School in Whitehouse Station, NJ. I have a BA in Elementary Education, a Master's Degree in Reading, and hold an additional degree in Educational Foundations. I am also a certified Reading Recovery teacher.
I have taught at the elementary level for the last 19 years, but hold a special place in my heart for Reading. I absolutely love teaching children how to read and giving them the necessary tools to become independent, lifelong learners.
My door is always open and I am never more than a phone call or email away. Please email with any questions or concerns and I will do my best to help.

staying together is progress, and working together is success"
