    Meet the Teacher

    Welcome to AIS Reading! My name is Stephanie Comerford, and I am excited to be working with your child this year. I am originally from Long Island, received a bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, and my master’s in education from the State University of New York at Albany. I am certified in Elementary Education N-6 and Developmental Reading K-12. I have been a teacher at Mill Road Intermediate School since 1993. I taught fifth grade for seven years and fourth grade for six years. This is my sixteenth year as a Reading Specialist.

    I am passionate about teaching reading and writing. Guiding children in all areas of their reading and writing development is both challenging yet rewarding.  I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures growth in a safe and positive learning environment. 

    On a personal level, I have been married for 28 years. I have two adult children and a fourteen-year-old Wheaton Terrier named Toryn. I enjoy reading, hiking, cross country skiing, relaxing at the beach, baking, and spending time with my family and friends.

    Looking forward to an amazing year!

    Mrs. Comerford


    Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
