Model principal, Mrs. Lynne Peters, was at the school board meeting last night, as Model Elementary was highlighted. Three kindergarten teachers, Londa Bontrager, Rachel Conley, and Amber Hochstetler, were the first to speak. They spoke about the many different ways that they have been working with kindergarten students to teach them to think like, act like, and learn to be readers. They shared several videos from the beginning of the year to now, illustrating the teaching practices and the growth of students.
Next, Model Special Education teachers, Jenna Zehr and Brooke Lemmon, spoke about the progress they are making with students. They reported that they are working in a new, larger space this year. The space has allowed them to work with smaller groups of students, which has been helpful, as they continue to work with students of varying degrees of need.
