I will teach 2nd grade at Gloverville Elementary, a TITLE I School in Gloverville, SC, a mill town where the only employment was in a textile mill which is now defunct. Gloverville Elementary is a 76% free and reduced lunch poverty TITLE I school and is in the top 10 poverty schools in Aiken County School District. Most of my students are on free or reduced lunch indicating a high proportion of students from a manipulatives deficient and book-free environment. I have over 30 years of teaching experience with a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education plus 12 additional graduate hours of Reading Recovery training from Clemson University.The past four school years my position at Gloverville Elementary was the certified Reading Recovery (RR) teacher who taught the lowest scoring 20% of struggling first graders in the morning , (the 4 lowest students in the first semester and the next 4 lowest scoring students the second semester) and held responsible with ongoing data to bring the Reading Intervention groups of 4-5 children receiving appropriate reading level with 30 minutes of instruction from me only each afternoon and one group of struggling 2nd grade readers to the reading level of their peers. Our public school district is 2 million dollars short in this year's school budget and I was one of several trained RR teachers not rehired FY 2013-14, but will teach 2nd grade. The intensive RR training taught me how to teach reading. Last year I spent $3,000 out-of-pocket on multi-level Reading Intervention books (Pioneer Valley Books) and recently I ordered (Lakeshore School Supply) a cart with 6 to 8 blue plastic tubs to display personal books. My classroom has 1 small inadequate book shelving unit and I am in dire need of more book shelving, many more plastic tubs to place books of different genres and for organization of all the books purchased by me ($450 of wonderful books at a recent July yard sale of a retiring teacher who had suffered a stroke), cozy seating ("Fat Boys" seating from Target") and large throw pillows for 4-5 children to read, a soft rug needed for an inviting Reading Area in order for organization of hundreds of books to teach 2nd grade Common Core Reading Standards. There is a gross lack of mathematics manipulatives to teach the concepts of 2nd grade Math Core Standards. Without a variety of manipulatives for students to use, I must rely on abstract symbolization to teach mathematics concepts. Many 2nd graders will arrive on August 19, 2013, without a grasp of 1st grade reading and/or 1st grade math concepts. I believe God created teachers, in His wisdom and His grace, to help children understand and truly comprehend the beauty and the wonder of every thing we see, and to learn to make our world a better, wiser place. Please consider donating a tax deductible donation to Ms. Carol Rinehart, a dedicated high quality 2nd grade teacher of a grossly lacking classroom of materials and equipment at Gloverville Elementary. A hearty thank you if you choose to contribute for your tax deductible gift. Thank you.
