Hello! My name is Julie Hill and I am the Reading Specialist at Linwood. I provide small group support to students in grades K - 3 who are struggling with reading and writing. I am trained in Orton-Gillingham and Reading Recovery, among other programs. I reach for any and every tool I have to help students build confidence as readers, including integrating art and movement into my interventions. In my groups we talk a lot about “building our reading muscles,” and I work to help children find their way into reading through following their interests, listening to their hearts, and realizing that “reading the word is reading the world.”
I live in Minneapolis with my husband and son. I love to be outside, bike, garden, weave, watercolor, and read, of course.
