My name is Heather McNeil, I am the Reading Specialist at Brown Primary. I am very excited to start the year with this group of students. This is my ninth year teaching, third year as a Reading Specialist/Interventionist and FIRST year at Brown!!! I love this job, love helping students learn and grow. It is such a pleasure to be in this community teaching your children.
Beginning of the Year testing
We will begin Brown Primary's annual STEEP testing Sept. 6th. This is an assessment given to Kindergarten, First and Second grade students at the beginning, middle and end of the year. We use this data, along with other assessment data, to assist us in creating groups for our RtI (Response to Intervention) program. We will also begin Istation Reading Assessments (iSip) Sept. 6th through Sept.16th. Teachers will take their classes to the computers for this computer-based assessment.
