Title I


Mrs. Mellor and Mrs. Hardt




 

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 Mrs. Hardt

Tell me about yourself.

I began my career at the Riley School, a private school committed to supporting the individual learner where I taught mathematics and science.  Since then, I have been apart of RSU 13 (formerly MSAD 50.) I taught third grade for all but the last several years. During that time period, I received my masters in Special Education in order to support all of the various learners in my classroom. I also received a certificate for Math Leadership from the University of Maine, Farmington.   I developed a response to intervention (RTI) system in math at the Cushing Community School, as well as the required documents. Presently, I am a Title 1 teacher at TGS!

 

Why do you like Title I?

I love helping students understand concepts that were difficult for them in the past. It is exciting to see their growth and watch them become enthusiastic about learning!

 

What is your plan for parent contact?

I send letters home once a student is on my caseload explaining the areas that we will be working on. I also send home progress reports three times a year. I can be reached by email at dhardt@rsu13.org or by phone by calling the school.

 

What are your homework guidelines?

Homework is individualized and at the parent’s request.
