Title I


Ms. Flanagan, Mrs. Mellor, & Mrs. Wilson




 

Meet Mrs. Mellor

Tell me about yourself.

I began teaching in 1978 at the high school level, moving on to grades 3, 5, and reading/language arts at the middle school level. My undergraduate degree is in Special and Elementary Education, with a minor in Reading Instruction. My graduate degree is in Educational Administration.

 

Why do you like Title I?

After instructing at higher levels, I wanted to work with younger children, assisting them in learning to read. It’s great to watch little ones become successful readers.

 

What are your favorite student units?

I enjoy maintaining the Accelerated Reader program. The students are so excited when they progress through the point clubs. It’s learning made enjoyable.

 

What is your plan for parent contact?

I can be reached via email at pmellor@rsu13.org or by phone at 354-6353. I mail home progress reports for quarters 2, 3, and 4.

 

What are your homework guidelines?

Home practice is individualized and at the parents’ request.

 

 

Meet Ms. Flanagan

Tell me about yourself.

I am originally from Thomaston and was a student at Thomaston Grammar School when it was a middle school. I lived in the Boston area for the past 10 years and during that time received my Masters in Elementary Education and a Specialist in Reading from Lesley University. Also during that time I worked in public schools in the Boston area with all grades from Kindergarten all the way up to Eighth grade. I moved back to the area last year and I love working in my hometown and seeing familiar faces

 

Why do you like Title I?

I love being able to differentiate instruction for students using manipulatives and seeing students progress towards their goals in math or reading.

 

What are your favorite subject areas?

My favorite subject areas are Math and Reading. Both of which I teach. I love being able to use fun math games for students who need to learn numbers and I love teaching students how to read.

 

What is your plan for parent contact?

Parents may contact me through my school e-mail address which is hflanagan@rsu13.org, call me at the school, or setup a time to meet with me.

 

What are your homework guidelines?

By parent request, I will send home homework.
