Hello! My name is Kate Benson, and I'm your Learning Assistance Program (LAP) reading specialist. This is my 7th year at Hillcrest, my 12th in Lake Stevens, and my 24th as an educator. I've taught grades K-6, either as a specialist or a classroom teacher, with the majority of my classroom time spent in 4th and 5th grades.
As a reading specialist, I enjoy that moment when children start using all the strategies that they've been taught, and are able to bring text to life. I believe reading is a key element to future success, and my job is one of the most important in my field.
