Title 1 School Improvement Specialist
My role as the Title I School Improvement Specialist is to provide support for students and teachers of grades K-6 in the content areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics for Mesa Public Schools. As an AVID leader, I believe students should be given support to become college and career ready.
I offer support by going into classrooms and helping teachers and students. I provide professional development training to our staff. I help the aides learn the curriculum to support our students and teachers. I handle the Title 1 budget and plan how the funds are spent to provide for our children. My job is to make sure your children are receiving the outstanding education they deserve. Because our staff is such an excellent team, I was able to write the A+ application that helped us earn the A+ School of Excellence Award. Go Porter Pride!
