Hello! I am Dee Orth and I am a Reading Recovery/Title 1 teacher at Park Elementary School. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Education from Frostburg State University in Frostburg, Maryland. Following my first year of teaching first and second grade in Guam, I spent 13 years teaching first or second grade in Chase, Kansas, In 1989, I added a Reading Specialist endorsement and Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas. After earning my Master’s, the opportunity came for me to become a Reading Specialist in the Lyons School District. I served as a Title 1 teacher at South, Park and Central Schools. Then, I went through the training to become a Reading Recovery teacher and have worked in this position since 1997. I currently reside in the country, outside of Lyons with my husband, Vince, where we both enjoy farm life. In my spare time, I like to read and travel.
