Welcome to the 2018-19 school year which is expected to be a fun-filled and educational year. My name is Kimberly Overton. I have been teaching in the Erie School District for 10 1/2 years. I am a graduate of Mercyhurst University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Education with a dual certification in Special and Elementary Education. In 2016, I received my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix. With the wealth of knowledge I have gained through education and my own experiences, I hope to create an atmosphere of learning and developmental growth in foundational reading, reading comprehension skills, and other reading developments.
This school year I will be teaching Read 180, a reading program that seeks to help students increase their reading comprehension through various reading strategies. System 44, a foundational reading program that seeks to develop and build students phonemic skills with basic elementary reading practice. Finally, Co-Teaching w/ 8th Grade Teachers (A. Nelson, Hynes, Carver, and Turner) to provide additional support and experitse within the regualr eduation classroom.
I am looking forward to working with every student to assist in making them career or college ready. On my teacher page, each student will be able to find important classroom announcements, homework assignments, extra practice activities, and other important information for my classroom.
