Reading Recovery
In addition to serving as our school principal, Patrick Ely is also our Reading Recovery teacher. Reading  Recovery is an individualized one-to-one tutoring intervention provided to some first graders to help them onto the path of success in literacy. This program builds on children's successes and helps them grow. It is designed to be short term 12-20 weeks and the child then has a stronger foundation. We are extremley lucky to be able to offer this nationally and world-wide recognized program in our small school. I also fill the roles of helping other students with literacy needs in the afternoons and being our schools Literacy Leader for grades K-2.
