Hello, my name is Judy King, and I am the Title 1 Reading Specialist for Central Elementary. I have taught 35 years. 27 of those years at Central Elementary. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from West Texas A&M with certification in Elementary Education and my Master of Education degree from the University of Oklahoma with certification as a Reading Specialist. I also have a National Board Certification in Literacy: Reading/Language Arts.
Rebecca McDougal is the Title 1 Assistant. Becky has several years of experience working with small groups of children in Title 1. She is a highly qualified paraprofessional who has a 2 year degree in early childhood education. This is her eleventh year to teach at Central.
Reading is the main subject we focus our time and resources. Mrs. McDougal and I instruct small groups of children to build their skills in reading. We also provide extra practice and instruction to upper grades for Reading/Language Arts test taking skills.
Parents may check out leveled reading books from the Title 1 classroom. These books can be used with their children at home. If you need assistance choosing items appropriate to your child's reading and math needs, please contact Mrs. King or Mrs. McDougal.
