Hello Hillcrest Families,
I am looking forward to continuing to work in the Resource Room at Hillcrest Elementary this year. This is my third year in the Oak Harbor School District. I have been teaching in Washington since 2011. Before teaching in Oak Harbor, I taught in Coupeville, WA, Gooding, Idaho and Corpus Christi, Texas. I have enjoyed becoming part of the community on the island with my husband and our four children. Being a part of the awesome Hillcrest staff has made my teaching experience exceed any of my expectations.
The 3/4 Resource program is set up with Specially Designed Instruction for students that need varying levels of support in learning. We teach in a small group setting in the areas of Reading, Writing, Mathematics, as well as Social Thinking. We also provide in-class support in order for students to feel successful in learning in their classrooms.
Students in the 3/4 Resource program have learning goals that we work to achieve throughout the year. Their progress is monitored and reports given each trimester. Parents are welcome to email or call my extension 5215 if they ever have any questions.
