Mrs. Jodi Heinen
For the 2021-2022 school year, I will be serving the Kennedy Community School as a reading interventionist for grades 3-5. As a reading interventionist, my primary focus is to help students develop literacy skills. I will be assessing students' literacy level and implementing a learning plan using the Sonday System. The Sonday System is a comprehensive, structured, systematic, multisensory reading intervention. I received training over the summer on how to implement this program. I am very excited about the program and its effectiveness.
I received my K-12 reading licensure in 2019 and I am so thankful to be able to utilize my new licensure here at Kennedy! This will be my sixth year here at KCS and I have established so many amazing relationships with staff, students and families.
It was a busy summer! My husband and I sold our home of 25 years! We are in the process of building a new home in Sauk Rapids on the Mississippi River. We are also first time grandparents to a sweet little boy who arrived August 9. Baby Mac has been a pure joy and watching my daughter and her husband become parents is truly magical.
I am looking forward to this school year with much enthusiasm!
