Welcome to Read 180 with Ms. McCafferty

  •  This Read 180 reading program is designed to help improve student's reading levels.There are several components to the Read 180 program and together they will help build the skills to become a successful reader.

    • Software to build skills and provide practice in essential areas such as reading, comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, phonics and spelling.
    • Audiobooks to allow students to read along with the help of a narrator and reading coach, who model strategies used by successful readers.
    • Paperbacks to allow students to select books to read independently. Students will have access to appropriate level, high-interest books.

    As a teacher in the community, I want to be a role model of integrity, academic excellence, outstanding character, and show students that I truly care about them. I believe an excellent teacher is always gaining knowledge and imparting that to the students. My personal educational philosophy encompasses a deep focus on each student's abilities and needs. My deep heartfelt desire is that my students would become all they can be and they would be equipped with the skills and knowledge that would enable them to function inside and outside of the classroom. 

     Ms. McCafferty will be completing twenty-seven years in her teaching career. She has taught in the Alliance public school district, along with Chadron and Scottsbluff. This will be her 11th year at Scottsbluff High School and completing her 5th year at Bluffs Middle School.

    Ms. McCafferty earned her under graduate degree from Chadron State College, and received her Master’s in Reading Literacy from Concordia University in May of 2007.

    Outside of the classroom Ms. McCafferty enjoys spending time in the great outdoors riding her bike, gardening, camping, and hiking. Also, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
