Welcome to Ms. Adkin's Website for 2013-2014
2nd grade Early Intervention Teacher (EIP)
About Our Program
Children start school at a designated chronological age, but differ greatly in their intellectual development and experience base. The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is designed to serve students kindergarten through grade five who are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level.
The purpose of the Early Intervention Program is to provide additional instructional resources to help students who are performing below grade level obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade level performance in the shortest possible time.
EIP Eligibility for Placement Criteria
Students ae placed into the EIP program based on a variety of indicators, which includes results from local and/or State assessemnts in English language arts/reading and mathematics, EIP Rubrics, and/or portfolios, and/or local school checklists.
EIP Exit Criteria
Students exit the EIP program based on a variety of indicators, which includes results from local and/or State assessements in English language arts/reading and mathematics, EIP rubrics, and/or portfolios, and /or local school checklists
Delivery Model Used
Presently, I am using the Pull-Out Model. This school year I provide services to kindergarten through second grade. EIP students are removed from the classroom for instruction by me for Reading or Mathematics
Please contact me, if you have any question at (404)802-4300. I look forward to serving our students to elevate their ability to become successful learners.
My Philosophy of Education
What I believe about teaching…is that Every one of us is both a student and a teacher. We are at out best when we each teach ourselves what we need to learn. I am in the helping and caring profession, a service profession to help people enhance the quality of their lives. Schools are owned and operated by the citizens of their local community. The schools are built for the students. I have positive expectations for student success. One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much I had in the bank account or what my clothes looked like. But the world will be a better place because I was important in the life of a child.
