Hi Parents, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Barb Rankin and I am the new reading specialist here at Downtown Montessori.
I received my teaching and reading license along with my Masters in Reading-Language Arts from Cardinal Stritch University. I have been teaching for about 22 years and bring to this position a love of working with students and watching them succeed. I have a passion for reading and encourage the students I work with to read at least 20 minutes a day. But I know as parents we have all heard this cry, “WHY CAN’T I SKIP MY 20 MINUTES OF READING TONIGHT?” Reading is the basis for all learning so… Let’s Figure it Out- MATHEMATICALLY!
