|Bromwell has the resources of several itinerant or part-time therapists (meaning they serve two or more schools). We also have full-time teachers that help our children outside the typical classroom setting with specific needs.
Brooke Goudy is Bromwell’s nurse. While she’s an expert in tummy aches, fevers, and band-aid application, she does much more at our school.
Rachele Johnson, Bromwell’s Speech & Language Therapist works with children who have communication problems that affect their success in classroom activities, social interaction, literacy, and learning. She works at Bromwell on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Rachele is originally from Detroit, Michigan. She received her training at Michigan State University and the University of Toledo.
Our occupational therapist, Jen Steiner works with kids on functional living skills, to help them succeed in the classroom setting. Ms. Steiner works with them on a variety of skills such as visual motor, visual perception, self-help skills, eye-hand coordination, and fine motor.
Our school psychologist, Carol Stafford has a variety of roles and responsibilities related to supporting Bromwell students. She is at Bromwell two days per week and spends much of her time working on issues related to special education compliance.
When time permits, the school psychologist also works with individual students, small groups, and classrooms to provide intervention services that enhance the academic and social/emotional progress of all children.
Kate Hutson is our (ELA) English Language Acquisition teacher. Bromwell has been designated to have an ESL Resource, or pull-out program. The purpose of the program is to help ELA students develop and refine their English language skills in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
I have been teaching ELA for more than nine years. Before coming to Colorado, I taught Learning Disabilities in Casper, Wyoming. The University of Missouri is my college alma mater. In my spare time I love to hike, bike, ski, and practice yoga.
Response to Intervention is an initiative that allows for the utilization of resources for students in need of academic support. RTI provides a system of interventions and resources which allows students to make significant progress, whether they are at-risk for failure or are gifted and talented students not meeting their full potential.
Already with us as the part-time, Intervention Teacher, Melissa joined us full-time for the 2013/14 school year. She works with small groups of students to help boost reading, writing, and math skills. Melissa has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University and a master’s degree from the University of Colorado in Education and English as a Second Language. She has worked as a Fifth Grade Teacher, Math Facilitator, and Intervention Teacher. She is an outdoor and travel enthusiast and spends lots of time with her family hiking, biking, and skiing.
