The Achieve program works with small groups of children to target instruction to their personal needs. This targets learning to the needs of the students so that work is on the students' level and encourages them to learn and achieve.
My Teaching Responsibilities
I work with first through fifth grade English/Language arts (reading and writing) groups and second through fourth grade math groups. These groups may change throughout the year as students progress through different reading levels and skill groups.
Things to do at Home
Reading and discussion of what is read helps develop comprehension. This is a very important aspect of reading. It is always beneficial to reread for clarification and making connections. For math practice, practice math facts. It is important for students to master the addition and subtraction facts for second grade, and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts for third and fourth grade as they practice in class.
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education from SUNY at Geneseo. I have been teaching at Mary S. Shoemaker School for 27 years in the Achieve Program ( formerly called Basic SKills). I also have choreographed the high school musical for 24 years (1992-2015). I have enjoyed working in Woodstown with the great staff.
