Mission StatementAs the reading specialist, my mission is to instill a love of reading in every student at Church Hill Elementary School. I will teach students how to use reading strategies to improve fluency and comprehension. I will provide opportunities for students to explore and expand their reading and writing skills throughout the year in a variety of ways.
Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Cathy Crew and I am the Reading Specialist at CHES. This is my thirteenth year in this position. Prior to that, I taught Kindergarten and 2nd grade. I was born and raised in Kent and Queen Anne's County. Before I began teaching, I was a family daycare provider for over 14 years. I returned to college, completed my teaching degree and received a Master's Degree in Reading from Wilmington University. I am married with 2 adult daughters--Jessica and Rebecca. I coached youth field hockey in Kent and Queen Anne's County for several years. I love reading, Googling, playing golf and watching many sports.
I am very fortunate to have been able to fulfill my childhood dream of teaching young children how to read.
