Title 1 - What does that mean??
Being a Title 1 School means that we receive Federal funding to help us provide higher quality reading and math instruction for our students. This funding also allows us to host family events that enable us to give resources and valuable information to parents about helping their children be successful. We are able to partner WITH our parents to provide the best possible education for the students in our schools.
The Mark Twain Building goals are goals we set as a building for areas that we would like to improve in. The link will take you to our Building Goals.
A Little About our Title 1 Staff
Mrs. Pugh - Title 1 Teacher and Instructional Coach
I have been teaching for 23 years. I began my career teaching 6th and 4th grades in Olathe, KS. I moved to Carthage, MO in 2004 where I taught 3rd grade for 1 year in Webb City. I then got a job here in Carthage at Columbian and taught 3rd grade for 14 years and 4th grade for 1 year before becoming a Title 1 teacher. I received my Master's in Education and my Reading Specialist K-12 Certificate in 2020. I then moved to Mark Twain where I have been the Title 1 teacher and Instructional Coach. I love Mark Twain and I am so grateful for the students and staff that I get to work with each day!
