Hello! My name is Leah Weber. I have been teaching for the Jordan School District since 1998. I was a special education teacher sixteen years and currently I’m a Response to Intervention (RtI ) reading teachers. I teach small reading groups of students that need extra support with improving their basic literacy skills along with increasing reading fluency. I’m a certified in Orton Gillingham Level I- II. I have enjoyed teaching many children how to read over the years with O-G strategies and techniques. I have also been trained in PRESS through the University of MN-Reading Research Center and have taught multi-leveled interventions to K-4 students.
As an educator it is important for me to identify individual academic needs, build confidence and to reinforce learning in a fun way no matter how hard it may be.
I grew up in Central Wisconsin were cheese is plentiful and the Packers are a family name. I attended the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in special education. Since then, I have taught adults at a correctional facility along with teaching one year at an alternative school setting for severely handicapped adolescents. Next, I found my Jordan Elementary Job and moved to Minnesota. Eleven years ago, I earned my Mater’s Degree in Teaching and Learning through Saint Mary’s University. This Fall I will be starting the K-12 Reading Program at St. Mary’s University.
Please feel free to email or call me with any questions or concerns. I enjoy being an educator and daily have the chance to make a difference.
