Mr. John Power
My name is Mr. Power and I will be your child’s Reading Intervention teacher this year at BHMS. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Beverly Hills community. This is my first year at Upper Darby School District, but I have been an educator for over 14 years. For the past six years I have worked in the city of Philadelphia teaching reading intervention and social studies. I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work within the Upper Darby School District as a reading interventionist. I find it to be one of the most essential classes offered. In this class I will pin-point strengths and weaknesses of each individual student in order to make the improvements needed for your child to be more successful academically.
As a reading interventionist we will be using a program called “Read for Real.” Read for real is a non-fiction reading comprehension program designed to help improve students' reading fluency, accuracy, and comprehension. When students improve their overall reading ability, then they will see marked improvement across all other academic classes as well!
