Gwen Pace, Reading Specialist

Our PTO has partnered with School Site Council and the district to bring reading specialist Gwen Pace to our campus 2-3 times a week. Ms. Pace is trained in Reading Recovery, an international early-intervention program developed by Marie Clay in New Zealand. Ms. Pace taught third and fifth grades in Virginia for 30 years before coming to Ojai, bringing a wonderful and extensive background of working with students to our school. Her work with San Antonio students targeted for extra support has proven very successful.
