Welcome to 

Reading & Math
Club 2018-2019!
I am happy to teach reading and math through North Grove's Title I program again this year!  This is my 9th year teaching in Title I at North Grove.  Prior to teaching at North Grove, I taught 2nd grade in an Indianapolis Public School for one year. In 2014 I completed my Masters Degree in Language Education, and I am currently trained in and teach using LLI (Leveled Literacy Intervention), an intensive literacy intervention designed to bring students to grade level achievement in reading.  Teaching Reading is a passion of mine, and I'm excited to see growth among students this school year and celebrate their successes with them!

Outside of school, my favorite ways to spend time include being with friends and family, anything outdoors, and being active! I also thoroughly enjoy my role as Auntie to my sweet niece and nephews in their toddler years.    
This semester, Title I is fortunate to have 2 Title I teachers and 2 wonderful instructional assistants teaching small groups:
Miss Haley Smith - Title I Teacher
Miss Tiffany Robinson - Title I Teacher
Mrs. Lydia Mansour - Title I Instructional Assistant
Mrs. Chanin Russell - Half day Instructional Assistant
In Reading Club, we implement Fountas and Pinnell's Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) in small groups with students.  LLI is a supplementary intervention; it is in addition to what is happening in the classroom.  We’re not supplanting what’s going on in the classroom, which is one factor toward accelerated progress in bringing students to grade level achievement in reading.  In a nutshell, LLI is designed so that over a span of 2 lessons, students read 2 books, write about reading and receive explicit teaching about comprehension strategies, phonics/word study, vocabulary and fluency.
This year we are teaching math through The Math Learning Center with a program called Bridges Intervention.  This resource provides targeted instruction and support within the RtI framework.  Visual models are used to promote student thinking, accelerate learning, and build confidence.
We welcome you to stop by our classroom any time!  Our classroom is currently located in the west side portable outside of door 5.  We're looking forward to a successful school year!
