All About Mrs. Kapp

    Dear Parents,

    Lori Picture

    Hi, my name is Lori Kapp and I am the middle school reading specialist.  I teach 6th grade intervention reading, 7th grade literacy and intervention reading and 8th grade reading. I have taught at both the elementary and middle school level.  I live in Mechanicsburg and have two children. I wanted to share my thoughts with you about reading.

    Reading is a skill and the best way to get better at reading is to read.  This holds true for excellent readers as well as reluctant readers.  We will have a lot of opportunities this year to read novels and short stories. Research shows that availability of books and choice are major motivating factors in getting teens to read. 

    If you have any questions about what we are doing in reading class, please feel free to email me  

    Thank you and I look forward to working with your child this school year.
