Mrs. DeAnna Schneider-Reading Recovery

Welcome to IHK! I am one of the Reading Recovery teachers at IHK.  This year I will begin my 17th year as a reading specialist at Irene King and my 20th year teaching. Prior to being at Irene King, I worked at a middle school and as a first/second grade classroom teacher.  This year I will be spending my time with Kindergarten-2nd grade students and teachers. I am very excited for this opportunity!

I look forward to taking part in your child’s school year journey. It is my goal to work hand in hand with your child and the classroom teacher to ensure that they gain the most out of their education here at Irene King.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  My husband and I have 2 wonderful kids.  Drew is in 6th grade and Brianna is in 5th grade. You will most likely see them around at IHK family night events!  

I am confident this is going to be a great school year. Collaboration and communication are very important. I am available through phone, e-mail or prearranged conferences. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
