My name is Heather Byrd and I am very excited to be your teacher this year!
I moved to Paulding County when I was in third grade! I went to P.B. Ritch Elementary for third and fourth grade, then they built Nebo and I was the first graduating class of Nebo Elementary! I graduated from Paulding County High School in 2005, then continued on to Kennesaw State University and graduated in 2010. I taught Pre-K at Paulding Kids University for 4 years, 4 years at Panter Elementary in third grade and this will be my third year at PCHS! My 11th year of teaching! I have been married for 11 years and we have a rambunctious nine year old named Silas. I also have beautiful twin girls, Hannah and Hadassah, who just turned 5! We also just welcomed a few more into our household; Chris (18), Nathan (14), and Taylor (13). We are so happy to share our happy home with these three boys!
An overview of Reading Enrichment
In this class we will:
· Work on comprehension skills
· Work on boosting Lexile levels
· Take frequent benchmark tests (Reading Inventory- RI) to reevaluate Lexile scores
· Produce daily written responses to literature
This is a class to better prepare students for what is to come in 9th Literature. I will expose them to a variety of literature and model comprehension strategies such as making predictions, analyzing, character traits, etc. I am here to help students succeed. I want to give all the resources that will help them do it on their own so they can become independent citizens. High school is their last leg before going into the real world and I want to make sure they are prepared. Please do not hesitate to email if you have any questions.
