My name is Dana Heffinger. I live in Anawalt, WV with my husband and 2 daughters. I love going into the classrooms and reading to the children. We have a wonderful group of children at AES!!!!
I go into the classrooms and read to the students and do activities that relate to the books that we read. I expect students to respect others, be active listeners, and to particpate in the activities that I do with their class.
To increase reading by instilling the love for reading in our students.
To increase parent involvement, by having activities for the parents to participate in at the school with their children.
To increase student's involvement of the arts with activities pertaining to the books they read.
I am looking forward to another great year at Anawalt Elementary School as the Family Literacy Assistant. I challenge all of our parents to attend our monthly Family Advisory Council (FAC) meetings, as well as to come out and read to your child at school. Every time you read to your child, they get a free book to increase their home library of books.
