Teacher

High Prairie School Division

During my time teaching with High Prairie School Division I have been given opportunities to grow and learn in a variety of areas within the teaching profession.

I was a classroom teacher in grade one for four years.  During this time I put a consistent focus on planning and implementing programs for students struggling in language arts.  I would determine the level of each student in my class and implement strategies to move each student forward  

I was also given the opportunity to act as school counselor and inclusive education coordinator.  In this role I assisted teachers in creating IPP's and developed programming for individual students.

  I also ran the Levelled Literacy intervention program for our school.  In this program I met with small groups of students each day who were reading one to two grade levels below the expected level in order to bring them up to grade level in reading.
