This week we welcomed our new reading specialist, Dr. Mary McGuire, to the Sacred Heart staff! Dr. McGuire has taught in Wyoming and Idaho as a classroom teacher and as a reading specialist. She has also instructed graduate level courses as an adjunct professor for several colleges and universities, to include teaching Diagnosing and Remediating Reading for The College of Idaho's school of education. Dr. McGuire has extensive experience in literacy instruction spanning nearly two decades. Her research and experience with literacy skills served as a catalyst for designing a reading curriculum that integrates music, lyrics, and the Orff Schulwerk Approach to improve the literacy levels and skills of students struggling with reading.
If you see her in the hall, be sure to say hello! We are incredibly excited to welcome her to the Sacred Heart community.
