My name is Betsy Hutchins. I am a retired Reading Specialist who cannot quite retire. I taught for over twenty years, in the Rivendell School District as a kindergarten teacher, a Reading Recovery teacher and also as a 2nd and 3rd classroom teacher. I received my Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist from Plymouth State University.
About Early Literacy
As an Early Literacy Teacher, I work with individual students and small groups of students needing extra support with reading, writing and spelling. I also work with students in reading groups at all ability levels. Three times a year, I assess all kindergarteners, first graders and second graders and sometimes students in higher grades. The information gained from these assessments is used to guide our instruction.
