Hello, My name is Jenafer Snyder; I am the reading interventionist at Kilmer. I have so much fun teaching and playing games with small groups of children and helping them to read with greater ease. It is exciting to see my students progress in their reading skills and develop a love for reading. I love working with children and treasure the cute things they say and do. This is my fifth year as the Interventionist and my 18th year of teaching elementary school. I have also taught Spanish, first grade, and second grade. My master's degree from UCCS is in Reading Curriculum and Instruction, and my bachelor's degree from Arizona State is in Elementary Education.
My husband and I have lived in Colorado Springs for 19 years and are continually amazed by the beauty of this region. We have five fun children and 11 adorable grandchildren. My hobbies include reading, writing, hiking, biking, cooking, and board games.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would just like to talk. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org;

Hello dear Kilmer families. I truly love being a part of the Kilmer family! My job as Reading Interventionist is to work closely with classroom teachers to meet the literacy needs of our students K-6. The literacy strengths and needs of all students are regularly monitored with a variety of assessments. When a need is identified, we address that need with the appropriate intervention. Some interventions are provided by the classroom teacher and some are provided by me or our wonderful para-professionals.
My passion is to help children reach their potential as proficient readers and to develop a love for recreational reading. Reading can be so much fun! It takes us to different times and places. It entertains, inspires, informs, and educates us. It is an essential foundational skill for all academic success.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I would love to help you in any way that I can.
