Learning Specialists

In order to facilitate individualized learning, learning specialists at each grade level collaborate with classroom teachers, subject-area teachers, and parents to identify the most effective learning strategies and to implement instruction that ensures maximum academic success. This flexible approach allows teachers to differentiate instruction to meet the individual needs of children in terms of increased challenge and additional support in the most productive way.

WRITING & LEARNING CENTER COFFEE OFFERS STRATEGIES TO ADDRESS ANXIETY IN CHILDREN

On Wednesday, November 27, we welcomed Dr. Bonnie Zucker to St. Patrick's for our second of five Writing & Learning Center Coffees, this one focused on helping children manage anxiety and stress.

These events focus on topics of particular interest to parents of middle school-aged students and, appropriately, Dr. Zucker presented on strategies parents of students in Grades 6 to 8 might find helpful when supporting their children. These strategies, however, are broadly applicable, so we extended the invitation to all St. Patrick's parents and hosted this coffee on the Whitehaven Campus to accommodate parents from beyond the Grades 6 to 8 ranks.
