Marshalltown Schools teacher Tami Huck recently completed a year-long program and achieved her Reading Recovery teacher leader certification from the Reading Recovery Program of Iowa at the University of Northern Iowa.
Huck, who has taught at Franklin Elementary School since 2000, will continue to teach and also serve to train Reading Recovery teachers throughout the Marshalltown Community School District as a teacher leader.
Reading Recovery puts special focus on those students who need extra help in learning to read in the first grade. Huck said it’s important for children to read to open up more learning for them.
“Reading pretty much drives everything,” Huck said.
Huck is now one of 21 Reading Recovery teacher leaders in the state and one of three recent graduates of the program.
