Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Our theme for GES is The Leader in Me! Readers are leaders at GES is our class motto. I am Betty Benningfield and I have been teaching for 27 years at GES. I have taught fourth grade, third grade, and am currently the Reading Intervention Teacher. This program is available to our school because of a Read to Achieve Grant. I provide small group instruction for Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students. These students are grouped for literacy according to their reading text levels.
The other intervention that I provide at GES is Reading Recovery. I am so excited about this upcoming year. Reading Recovery is a one-on-one intervention that allows reading instruction to struggling first grade students. We are off to a great start with many awesome leaders at GES!
