The Learning Support Team
Our Director of Teaching and Learning provides support for children demonstrating need in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics, by pushing into the classroom and meeting with students both one-to-one and in small groups. Extended learning opportunities are available to students seeking enrichment in varying subjects.
With our school wide focus on small group instruction and inquiry in the classroom, the Director of Teaching & Learning, along with guidance from Division Directors, also provides professional development opportunities and in class instruction for all our teachers.
Also part of our Learning Support Team is Kate Childs, LPC, and the Director of Wellness & Equity. Kate serves the team from a counselor perspective and works to maintain equity, individuality and differentiation as a priority while working with each child.
Speech and Language
Students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade who demonstrate a need for speech and language services are screened in the fall. Those students determined to benefit from services meet one-to-one with a therapist from an outside provider on a weekly basis.
