Mrs. Reichelt's Reading Room

Welcome to my website! I'm Mrs. Reichelt and I am a Title One Reading teacher at Parkview Elementary. I have been teaching in New London since 2000. I taught First Grade for 8 years before moving into the Reading Room in 2008. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from UW-Stout in 2000. I earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and a Reading 316 license from Viterbo University in 2007.

When I am not teaching, I like to spend time with my family and travel. I also love to read! I try to read every chance I get. Reading has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember!

If you would like to contact me, please do so by email: jreichel@newlondon.k12.wi.us or phone 982-8538.

WHAT IS TITLE ONE?

Title 1 is a federally-funded program under the Improving America's Schools Act (IASA). The purpose of Title 1 is to enable all children to meet high academic standards. This is accomplished by providing meaningful and challenging opportunities for student learning. Under Title 1 legislation, schools and families form partnerships to help students who need support in meeting high academic standards. Congress has provided this financial assistance to qualifying school districts since 1965.

 

TITLE ONE IS A PARTNERSHIP

Parents are their child's first and most important teacher. Parents are a great influence on their child's educational attitudes, habits, and interests. In Title 1, parents and teachers build a cooperative partnership. Title 1 teachers work with families to share strategies and techniques to help their children become more successful learners. Parents are encouraged to participate in Title 1 family events that support the joy of learning together.
