Mrs. Amy Pitts
Hi, I am Amy Pitts. I am the reading interventionst for all grades. This will be my fourth year at Odenville Middle School, my second year as the reading interventionist. I was a resource teacher my first two years. I taught special education in Limestone County for two and a half years before moving to Odenville. I have nine years prior experience in the early childhood classroom in the public school setting, as well as many years as a preschool teacher in private school settings.
I will be teaching all aspects of the reading process using multi-sensory methods and the computer programs Lexia PowerUp. I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in education from The University of Alabama! Roll Tide! I am married and live in Odenville. I have three young adult children and a precious two year old granddaughter. I also have an English bulldog named Georgia. I enjoy watching all University of Alabama sports, Olympic sports, reading, and going to the beach! I look forward to a wonderful year at OMS!
Hi everyone! I am happy to have you in my reading class. You will be completing assignments in class, through TEAMS, and on Lexia PowerUp.
We are waiting for some glitches to be corrected before we can access the Lexia PowerUp reading program. We will log on through Clever when it is ready! Once it is up and running I am asking each of you to complete 60 -90 minutes (1 hour-1 1/2 hours) on Lexia each week. I am able to see what you are working on even when you are at home.
* If you do not have internet access at home, then please read for 60 minutes (1 hour) in addition to what your ELA teacher is asking you to do. You may read a novel, non-fiction books or articles, magazines, comic books, recipes as you cook a meal, instructions as you play a game with your family, ingredients on your cereal box or other household products, just read! You will need to submit what you have read by messaging me through TEAMS.
