Public Education’s Remedial Coordinator, Ms. Patricia Maier, just returned from Columbus, Ohio where she attended the National Reading Recovery and K-6 Literacy Conference. Ms. Maier was one of fifteen recipients who received a partial scholarship of $1000 from the TOSA Foundation, which covered almost half of the expenses of the trip. The TOSA Foundation is a private family foundation that awards gifts to charitable and educational causes.
Ms. Maier attended workshops dealing with English language learners, interactive writing, early intervention programs, reading, and writing. The knowledge gained dealt with current topics and techniques that were researched based and practical. She will share her information with colleagues, her group of Public Education Remedial Teachers, and the students in the teacher education program she teaches.
