I am a Teacher Consultant/Response to Intervention (RtI) Coordinator working closely with K-3rd grade teachers and support personnel providing hands on support and professional development in the area of reading. I work collaboratively with administrators, reading specialists, classroom teachers and special education teachers developing intervention plans for students at-risk for reading disabilities. I am also a Multi-Disciplinary Evaluation Team member who evaluates students for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) and other areas of special education eligibility. My focus is using assessment data to guide classroom instruction as well as intervention for at-risk learners. Make, Take & Teach is my way of providing teachers with the materials they need for their small group intervention and differentiated literacy centers.
I live in the mitten state (that would be Michigan– not Wisconsin) with my husband and three teenage children. I absolutely love living in Northern Michigan where we enjoy participating in recreational activities year round!
A.J. attends Michigan State University, Kassie will be attending Alma College in the fall and Lizzie is home with me for a few more years. Yes, I will have three in college- YIKES!
