TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Welcome to Astute Hoot! In 2010, Jennifer, a special education teacher, and Jessica, a second grade teacher, began co-teaching a reading intervention block. We were exasperated by the extreme budget cuts, which had left our students with limited resources and services to meet their needs. We were frustrated to see a system failing students as the cuts were leading to a one-size-fits-all education. We knew we had to change the status quo because our students deserved better! This inspired us to form Astute Hoot: Tools for the Wise Teacher. We joined forces with, Tina, the designer of all things Astute Hoot, and Jennifer’s sister, to create a unique cast of reading and math strategy animals and accompanying books, hands-on tools, lessons, and graphic organizers. As our engaging animals helped bring the strategies to life, our most reluctant students blossomed into motivated, enthusiastic learners; they begged to meet new animals and asked for extra graphic organizers for home. Our students made the greatest reading gains in the entire school district! We knew we had something special and ultimately, we wanted to share these resources and teaching tools with other teachers so their students could experience the same results. Helping other teachers and students is our passion and we are excited to contribute to your classroom success!
