About the Reading Intervention Team

  • Hello!  Welcome to reading intervention at Patriot Elementary School.  We are dedicated to supporting students in developing their reading skills.  We work with students in a small-group setting.

    Debra Nelson - Kindergarten

    Mari Benzin - First Grade

    Jaime Brown - Second and Third Grades

    Anne Hamilton - Fourth and Fifth Grades 

    Mari Benzin-As a reading interventionist, I will be working on building reading skills with children in the first grade classrooms. Students will be identified and placed in small groups for intervention where they will have intensive reading instruction. Students will be tested and monitored as they progress in the program. I will be in contact with parents whose children qualify for the program.  

    Anne Hamilton - I look forward to sharing my love of reading with your child.  Based on reading assessments and observations by the classroom teachers, students will be identified and placed in small groups for intensive reading instruction.  I also work with students identified by classroom teachers as needing intervention in math.  Please continue to read with your child at home.
