Reading Resource Teacher: Mrs. Amanda Johnston
The Saint Mary Reading Resource Department is designed to ensure that all students learn and reach their full potential. Mrs. Johnston, the classroom teachers, administration and parents work collaboratively to support and assist students with learning differences and students who are experiencing marked difficulties in reading.
Students in Tiers II and III receive additional support in our Reading Resource Department. Placement is determined by Mrs. Johnston with input from the classroom teachers, administration and parents.
The program provides differentiated instruction through a variety of instructional strategies and diverse learning environments. The Reading Resource Department oversees all reading intervention plans and assists the classroom teacher as needed. There is constant evaluation, monitoring, discussion and contact with parents.
