I am Pat Cobb, a reading interventionist at Whittier School. I work with teachers and students, assisting in the development of reading skills for K-6 students. I also support math intervention in the intermediate grades. I have taught school in Mesa Public Schools since 1969. I was on the staffs of Holmes School and Robson School teaching kindergarten for over 31 years with several other years spent in the first and second grades. I retired in 2005 and then returned part time in 2007 serving as a reading coach/ interventionist at Whittier school. The school was involved in the Reading First program and Whittier has continued the practices of this program. Currently we have both a primary and an intermediate lab serving students needing extra support for reading and math skills. I supervise the curriculum, groupings and instructional assistants supporting our intervention programs.
