Hello! My name is Kathleen Salter and I run RTI for the Elementary side of our school. RTI is Response to Intervention, and the program is designed to help struggling students close the gaps and get back to grade level skills.I pull the students in small groups and use targeted interventions to help them become successful. My main focus in Reading is the very foundation, phonemic awareness and phonics, where most reading problems begin. I earned my Masters Degree in Education focusing on elementary level reading, which is the science of teaching children to read. I am also certified to teach Math, and in Math, we also work on the basics, giving students more practice in the areas they have trouble.
