Welcome to Ms. Upton's RTI2 Reading Intervention Classroom. For more information on RTI2, please click here: RTI2 with Mr. Duke.
I am a reading interventionist at Smyrna Middle School. After graduating from MTSU, I was excited to become part of the SMS family. This is my 14th year at Smyrna Middle School. For the first several years I taught English Language Arts, but my passion was helping struggling students. I was excited to transition to reading intervention 6 years ago. I love spending my day with students who are working hard to advance their reading.
My goal in Reading Intervention is to help students who need extra reading instruction meet their goal of reading well on grade level. My students work on reading skills, not standards. Students work on their areas of weakness, so not every student is working on the same skills.
