Hello! My name is Mrs. Cindy Carr. I have been teaching in the Wellsboro Area School District for over 30 years as a reading specialist and a classroom teacher. I am a graduate of Wellsboro High School, and hold a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Mansfield University in elementary education. I am also a certified reading specialist. I am married and have two adult children.
I am one of two Title I reading teachers at the Don Gill Elementary School. If your child is assigned to me, he/she scored below the 30th percentile on our school wide aimswebPlus testing in Reading and/or Below Proficient on the PSSA ELA assessment (4th grade only). Extra reading instruction at his/her independent level will be given outside the regular classroom in a small group and/or individual setting. Your child will not miss instructional time during their time with me.
I encourage teacher-parent communication. Please check your child’s R.E.D. (Read Every Day) folder nightly for the reading log, AR book, and possibly a Read Naturally passage and/or sight word cards. Working together is what is right for your child’s education. I can be reached via email, Remind, Seesaw, or by calling the Don Gill Elementary School.
