Monticello Teachers Receive Award For Dyslexia Program

Print PDF

Dyslexia AwardMONTICELLO (Journal-Republican) — Monticello’s Lincoln and White Heath Elementary schools have received an award for their dyslexia screening and intervention program that was put into effect in 2012. Intervention teacher Jenna Branch and special education instructor Mary Rhodes received training on how to identify those with dyslexia, and since 2012 have screened about 110 incoming elementary students per year.

The efforts have been recognized by Everyone Reading Illinois, which awarded the schools with the 2015 “It Takes a Village” award.

“The award is nice, but I think mainly I see that we’re helping kids, and bottom line that is what is most important to me,” said Rhodes, who along with Branch will be a presenter at the ERI fall conference, “Dynamics of Dyslexia” on Oct. 7 in Naperville.

The Monticello CUSD #25 Board of Education invites you to attend a Community Town Hall Meeting scheduled for October 8 at 7:00PM at Monticello High School Moore Gym. At this meeting we will share additional details about facility options being considered, we will have renderings of what both options could essentially look like, we will formally announce the potential site if the New HS Plan is selected, we will discuss how our schools will work differently if a long term plan is approved and we will answer your questions about both of the options.

We look forward to seeing you at the Town Hall Meeting. Cookies and lemonade will be provided.  

Information on the two options, why we need to consider improvement, the costs, the tax estimates, and the meeting can be found here.

If you have specific questions or just want to further the discussion please email Supt Vic Zimmerman at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or stop by the district office.

Smith Receives 2014 Voya Unsung Heroes Award

Voya Unsung HeroesEach year, Voya selects 100 finalists to receive a $2,000 award, while three of them are selected as Top Winners to receive additional grants.

According to Voya's Unsung Heroes Website, Jennifer "Smith’s innovative teaching idea, 'Sages in 3D,' is designed to strengthen students’ understanding of all aspects of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts through hands-on experiences using 3D printers. The program will enable students to learn how to create and build prototypes and create designs using 3D printers. Students will improve their problem solving skills as they navigate the use of new, cutting edge technology. Students will also be encouraged to create manipulatives and models using the 3D printer as a way to increase not only their understanding of scientific concepts, but also their understanding of the potential of 3D printing. In order to help the middle school students identify practical applications for 3D printing, they will create manipulatives that the teachers and students will use throughout the district’s middle school classrooms. Through this project, students will directly see how technology can positively impact the future. They will also be encouraged and challenged to build creatively and critically."
