Welcome to my page! I am the Basic Skills Math Interventionist (“Math Coach”) at Chestnut Ridge and Bunker Hill Middle Schools. I work with 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students during their Math and/or P.E. study hall periods. During small group sessions, specific Math skills are targeted, including basic Math facts, current Math curriculum content, study skills and test preparation strategies. During Math class time, the Math teacher and I work together to ensure quality instruction.
Our Math Intervention program follows a Response to Intervention (RTI) model. The RTI Model is an educational framework designed to improve the achievement of selected students. RTI emphasizes the importance of quality teaching, early intervention, differentiation, and regular progress monitoring using data driven instruction. RTI addresses the unique learning needs of the students in the program, uses a push-in or pull-out educational approach, and guarantees that students will not have to make up assignments at home if pulled out of class.
