“Encouraging a child means that one or more of the following critical life messages are coming through, either by word or by action: I believe in you, I trust you, I know you can handle this, You are listened to, You are cared for, You are very important to me.”

    Hello! My name is Cathy Miller, and I have had the pleasure of teaching children in SCASD since 1991. I started out in the district teaching first grade, moved to teaching intermediate grades for the bulk of my career, and then assumed the role of instructional support teacher, grades K-5, at the former Boalsburg/ Panorama Village Elementary School for several years. I was PAWSitively excited to join the Corl Street team as the multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) interventionist in 2015.
    I enjoy wearing multiple hats here at Corl Street. My favorite hat, the teacher hat, includes providing targeted instruction and assessment to K-5 general education students who demonstrate a need for additional support. This school year, I will also teach a third grade math class to provide for smaller class sizes. Hat number two is coordinator of our multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) team meetings; collaboration between school and family helps to maximize success for all of our learners. I share a third hat with Dr. Mark-- co-coach of our school-wide positive behavior interventions and support (SWPBIS) team. This team’s efforts strengthen our school community for both students and adults alike. I’m looking forward to a PAWSitively terrific school year!
    Thank you for sharing your children with me this year. Whether greeting their smiling faces during arrival at school, working with them academically, or sharing a PAWS ticket when I see them Practicing kindness, Acting responsibly, Working hard, or Showing respect, I so enjoy all of my daily interactions with the students at Corl Street!
