Reading Specialist

Welcome to Mrs. Malesky's Page

     I am Lisa Malesky, the reading specialist at Driggers Elementary.  This year  I will be working  with students that need an extra boost in the area of reading. I will be teaching them strategies to help them  succeed and hopefully instill a lifelong love of reading. Last year the state revised the TAKS test. It is now called the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR).  Please visit the link to the Texas Education Agency (TEA)  on this webpage for the most current information, as well as other  reading links for you to use at home. I hope everyone has a great school year!!!   

STAAR Dates for 2014:

3rd Grade: April 22nd and 23rd

4th Grade: April 1st, 2nd, 22nd and 23rd

5th Grade: April 1st, 2nd and 23rd
