Mrs. Sherry Holton

Hello from the Reading Success Program!  I am beginning my 29th year of teaching.  I have been a classroom teacher in grades K-2 both in Minnesota and California.  I have also worked as a reading specialist at Lone Mountain Elementary.  I took off from teaching for five years when we adopted our two children.  During that time, I was an independent contractor for the Arizona Literacy and Learning Center and worked with dyslexic students. I returned to CCUSD as a reading specialist at Desert Willow Elementary and have enjoyed my position here for the past seven years!  I love spending time traveling, hiking, swimming, and going on outings with my artist husband and my two children.  

It is my educational philosophy to explore student abilities and interests and use this information to set goals, support skill development, build motivation and develop positive reading habits.  Most importantly, I strive to develop confidence and a lifelong love of reading.
