T.A. Brown Elementary School

Instructional/Curriculum Specialists

Meet our Bilingual Reading Specialist! 
 
 
 
My name is Christine Flores and I am the Bilingual Reading Specialist at T.A. Brown Elementary School. I am originally from Brooklyn, NY, but have lived in Texas for most of my adult life. As Austin is my home; so is T.A. Brown.
 
I have worked at T.A. Brown for the past 19 years and through the years have worked closely with the T.A. Brown community, teachers, and students in the area of literacy.  I am currently working with small groups of students from 2nd grade through 5th grade. I concentrate on helping the students become stronger readers by teaching phonics, building their vocabulary, increasing their reading fluency, and helping them to comprehend what they are reading.  
 
I love working with the students and watching them become independent readers. I enjoy working at T.A. Brown and sharing my passion for reading with the students and helping them to become life-long readers and learners. 
 
Please let me know how I can help you as you support the reading of your children.
