Welcome to the Roosevelt Elementary Title 1 Department! I am Cathy Thornton, the Title 1 Improvement Specialist. My main role is to support students, teachers, and parents with instruction. This includes providing training to teachers and parents, training and overseeing our instructional support staff, assessing students, coordinating testing, helping teachers with curriculum and providing resources for instruction. I also oversee the Title 1 program at the school.
A little about me, I did my undergraduate work at Mount Vernon Nazarene College in Ohio and earned my Masters in Education from San Jose State University in CA. I have Reading, English Language Learners, and Early Childhood Endorsements.
Throughout my career I have taught every grade K-6, including working with home school students/parents of all ages. I just finished my 4th year as a Junior High Title I Insturctional Specialist. My love for elementary has brought me to Roosevelt!
On a personal note, my husband and I have three grown children and eight grandchildren. They bring us great joy!
If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
Mrs. Cathy Thornton
