Our Teacher of the Month for February is Susan Steinmark, a thirty year teaching veteran, with 23 of those years in the Poudre School District. Introduced by Assistant Principal, Cheryl Day, Susan is a very busy instructional coach and literary interventionist.  Every day she meets with small groups of students from grades one through five who are struggling with reading.  She also mentors and coaches teachers and is proud of the growth she has observed in them.  This activity has led to her to become a consultant at the district level for literacy professional development for PSD staff, leading professional development sessions.  In preparation, she consumes data attempting to catch students before they falter.  She also is part of the district’s literacy curriculum team and the writing curriculum team.  Besides specific help with reading and writing, Susan is keenly interested in moral lessons she can impart to students and works with school and community student service projects called Lighthouse projects.  She is a teacher with a busy schedule and the dedication to fulfill her many responsibilities.  As a student herself, Susan was a Rotary scholarship recipient 35 years ago!
