Welcome to Title I

  • Elizabeth Hinton's Title 1 Reading Groups

    Dear Parent,

    Our district uses standardized testing, to identify students who could benefit from extra instruction. This data indicates that some children are 'at risk' in the category of Reading.  Therefore, these children are selected to receive additional assistance and meet with me in a small group setting. This program is designed to help students strengthen his or her reading ability.

    A little about me:  I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but have lived in Gilbert, Arizona for the past 21 years.  My husband and I have 5 children. Our youngest daughter is a senior in high school this year, the rest have graduated college. The picture below shows our four daughters, our son, and our son-in-law. 

    I obtained my undergraduate degree from Northern Illinois University and my Master's Degree and Reading Endorsement from Grand Canyon University. I have previously worked as a Librarian in the Gilbert School District and as a 6th grade Reading teacher at Peralta Trail Elementary (Apache Junction School District).

    This will be my 8th year at Desert Vista as a Reading Intervention Specialist. I am excited to work with your child. We will be having a great time while we learn to read, apply comprehension strategies, and discuss our literature!

    Studies show that parental involvement in a child's education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. Please ask your students about what we are reading and learning in class. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions. You may reach me by email at ehinton@goaj.org or phone 480-982-1110 ext 5931. 
    Click the link on the left tab menu for your child's specific grade level and you will find grade-level appropriate resources to practice at home. There are also links to some great websites on the left under the Resource Links tab.  Check them out! Let's work together to help your student achieve his or her maximum potential!
