    Welcome to grades 3-5 Early Intervention Program (EIP) at Dutchtown Elementary School!
     
    Thank you for stopping by to learn more about us.  I am so very thrilled about supporting your children this year. In EIP, there are 3 teachers who aim to provide your child the best support system possible to improve your child's confidence and enhance his/or academic skills.  
     
    I am a 28 year veteran teacher who has taught in EIP one-half decade. Collaborating with a new team of passionate administrators, we are mentally strong for the challenge of measuring academic success, and providing support in areas of weakness. We want to work with you to target those areas and close learning gaps. We hope to make EIP a fluid process whereas students can exit this program as quickly as skills are improved as measured by the Measures of Academic Progress Assessment (MAP). 

    My class is a warm and cozy environment where students feel comfortable to learn.  Our class size will never exceed 14 students.  We learn in centers that are well planned and the learning is differentiated to personalize your child's experience.  We work on foundation skills to strengthen reading fluency, comprehension, vocabulary acquisition and math fact fluency and reasoning. Evidence-based writing is an area we are working on to support our school's initiative and prepare for the Georgia Milestones.  We each have Chromebooks this year to assist with your child's digital learning and experience.  Your child has a username and password that they can also utilize at home to continue their learning in various areas. Please have your child show you the site and the work they have done there. Another helpful site where your child can read at their personal RIT band level is http://fortheteachers.org , and readworks.org. If you think your child would benefit from watching math videos, please visit http://mathantics.com

    It is my belief that all children can learn with the right supports in place. I believe that EIP is that support along with yours. I look forward to meeting with your family to discuss the areas I can be of help. I would like to show you ways in which you can also assist at home. Working together, we are an incredible team!
