What will I expect in my Language Arts Resource or Success class?

Students will be learning reading & writing strategies and how to put them into practice daily.  Here is a sample of some of the programs or activities the students may be participating in.

Kansas Writing Strategies - learn sentence writing strategies for a variety of types of sentences and apply on practice sheets.  After mastery of sentence writing, students will move onto paragraph writing strategies.

AIMSWeb - quick "snapshot" assessments to monitor your progress in the areas of reading and/or written expression

National Geographic INSIDE - a program with high interest levelled reading that works on fluency, comprehension strategies, and vocabulary.  Students will also learn about different types of writing and will complete writing projects throughout each unit.

Who is Mrs. Boyce?

Welcome!  I am one of the resource teachers at Clay Middle School. I grew up as a middle child of three in Highland, Indiana (A.K.A. Da Region). In the spring of 2002, I received a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education – Learning Disabilities from Butler University. After graduation, I taught in Brownsburg at Brown Elementary as a LD Resource Teacher for one semester. The following summer, I moved to New Hampshire with my husband Séamus. For the next three years, I taught at Woodland Heights Elementary School as a special education teacher in Laconia, NH (The Lakes Region). During the summer of 2006, my husband took a job with a law firm in Fishers and we moved back to Indiana.  In 2006 I began teaching resource at Forest Dale Elementary, and in the fall of 2010 I moved to Clay Middle School.

In June 2010, I completed a Masters of Science in Special Education from IUPUI, and in 2011, I completed the Director of Exceptional Needs Licensing Program at IU Bloomington.

When it comes to sports spectating, I enjoy cheering on the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks, and Chicago Cubs.  I am a huge Butler Bulldog fan and also enjoy cheering on the Wabash Little Giants (my hubby's alma mater) and IU Hoosiers basketball.  I also enjoy gardening, reading, and spending time with family.  We welcomed our 2nd daughter last spring, and it has been fun watching the girls grow and play.
