Bethlea H. Pieratt

Ms. Pieratt and Ms. DeBord implement a literacy study group to increase professional collaboration, examine their own teaching, and improve reading instruction with a focus on fluency and comprehension. Study group members investigate research, examine student work and data, and develop practical ways to apply research to the classroom setting. The study group shares its work with the school improvement team and at monthly grade level meetings to help maximize the impact on student achievement.
