Live in Wisconsin... small, very rural community. Two children, aged 8 and 10. Both have been in Title 1 and youngest has been identified as learning disabled. Free time (huh?): little league, girl/boy scouts, gymnastics, piano lessons...enjoy it all! Also taking classes for reading teacher certification...house looks (very) lived in!!
About My Classroom
3-90 minute blocks (6th, 7th, 8th) usually 15-18 students in each. Really enjoy the middle school age group. District is very supportive of R180.
Experience and Training
24 years teaching; 23 in sp. ed. and now R180. BS from UW Madison, Masters from UW LaCrosse. I go to any R180 training that my district offers...so have attended several day 1 and day 2 trainings and learn something(s) new every time!
Why I Teach READ 180 and/or System 44
R180 has been so successfully implemented in my district. Adminstration has been on board from day 1 so we have the materials that we need and the schedule to make it work.
